Interesting composition although I would prefer to make the photo from a lower level to avoid the car wheels.

It's a very nice photo. I like the symmetry. But I agree, it should be taken fro a lower point, and somehow without that carriage, which has the same color like the horses. I think you should take this shot from the other side - with your back to that carriage.

Nice picture. Really cool how the 2 horses are facing each other. I thought it was a bit faint. I did a workshop. Hope you like it.

nice picture. Tried a WS.

Hi John,

The horses are looking alike almost like twins. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the horses. The subject is well frame. You capture well their sad expression. The light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice weekend.


Interesting what they had to whisper each other.
One of your earlier post - nice and fun to watch.
Have a nice weekend,

Hello, John,
I am walking in your archives.
Fine composition, good idea to shot two horses and two wheels together.
I think, this is one of your firsts photos here.
Warm regards,

Hello John,
This is a humorous and symmetric photo. Very well seen and rendered!

Hello John
Interesting horses of an unknown species. At the same time they seem to be lower like ponies. Perhaps these ones can be good for the agriculture activity. In my country the donkeys almost disappear but now they are being created in private fields. I cannot have such animals because I live in a urban place as you know. To own a farm requires a lot of dedication. But when families are numerous it is easier. Warm regards. Tomi
