YOu aren't the only one who puts up a thread with few responses.
They aren't terrible, but if you want to hear an unsoftened opinon, here goes:
They aren't interesting. I scan by them in two secs. There is nothing that makes me want to look at them longer than that. Nothing remarkable in either the composition, the subject matter, the lighting and color . YOu often shoot into the light, which is very hard to do and make it work (too much dark foreground and silhoette.
Your tiliteing of the picture with the fence lines only serves to make it feel forced and uncomfortable, since we appreciate the stability of horizontal lines . The close ups of the nose are not appealing, nor artistic. They may be funny, true, but anyone can take that shot.
The first photo is the nicest, as it does capture a bit of the "far away" feeling that a horse looking in the distance can have. Were there better lighting, or more interesting framing (composition), it would be better.
Think of you photograpsh as paintings, at least the ones that are not of action. Foreground, middle ground, background. A composition that helps the veiwer's eye mover THROUGH the painting/photo.
Take more, post only the best.;l
Does that make you feel better?
