    Hello BW section =)

    I shot these not too long ago of a beautiful white horse that lives right down the street from my house. Currently no one is living in the house where the stables are attached to but the, who I assume to be, owner of the estate happened to be there when I walked down and he gladly let me come on the property to get some shots. Kudos to him!

    This first one was pretty difficult to post process. I shot it in color but the entire image had this orange glaze over it that I wasn't a big fan of. I was able to get much more out of it after switching it to BW.

    Thanks for your comments, truly appreciate it. I forgot to mention, I shot these on a Kamero 135mm legacy that someone gave me a long while ago, I feel it lacks in sharpness but I'm a pretty big fan of the focal length.

    The one where the horse is overlooking the fense looks plenty sharp from here.

    It could very well be that I'm just not acclimated to manual focus yet :p

    The first one has an ethereal quality to it, but both are lovely. :)

    Nice shots, Ryan. I really like thecontrast in the first one, a white horse on a fairly dark background.

    One advice, though... Pay attention to your composition, particularly when it comes to cropping the subject's limbs off. It would look a whole lot better if the poor fella could keep his hooves. :)
