fantastic shot. how about: try to convert to b+w, get the horse to 2/3 of the picture (away from the center), perhaps add a little vignetting? it should get even more convincing.
A la luz de la luna y las estrellas bajo esa eterna noche interminable mis mejillas se mojaban por las lagrimas del dolor ,cuanto dolor irreparable hay en este mundo,cuantas personas estan sufriendo las personas de seres queridos injustamente por el hambre,las guerras,la falta de empleo y yo oigo share,share,quien soy yo ?me pregunto yo tengo esa capacidad?no lo creo y vuelvo a oir share share,bueno quiza por intentarlo no pasa nada,veremos que pasa si me da un ser superior el metodo para salvar lo que me piden.amen.
vueltas y mas vueltas daba mi mente como salvar esa hermosa naturaleza,ea hermosa gente sin pensar en que la fe puede mover montañas,los animales de AFRICA que va a pasar? los de los bosques? los de los riscos?tenemos que dejar que cazen?.solo por capricho? este mundo puede y debe cambiar. Aveces me pregunto si hay alguna fuerza sobrehumana la que esta haciendo tanto desastre por todos lados por un lado tanta sequia y por el otro tantos desastres naturales. hola ¿eres mayke?no te reconozco en esa foto tengo ganas de verte y trabajar espero que tu esta vez si. hasta pronto.
Marisela Murcia Navarro — The 'riderless horse' scene from Cervantes 'Man of La Mancha' where Quixote leaps with his camera from the devil's back to photograph the phenomenon of man riding horse, only today Quixote has forgotten his chariot, lance and photo satchel, so there is no picture to take. Gary Conn
Not only was this shot a gift, but, it was a magical moment for the photographer. As a photographer I love those moments!!
Thank you all for sharing your feelings, I'm glad to have awakened in you as magical moments. A hug * m
Having had this scene handed to her as a gift,was truly that. Taking the wonderous picture is all kudos to her. I love the white horse, seemingly waiting there to have its picture taken among the almost white trees! What a beautiful calm shot, that wants nothing more, asks nothing more. j.e.s.
@Shane Hughes Me, too. I would have photoshopped out the tree that is across it.
Probably explains why I'm not a pro.
Yes, I can see the ethereal quality but the tree annoys me.
@Shane Hughes maybe it's just your imagination that is struggling...let it fly. This photo is poetic.
@Linda Petersen This is an image in which the subject takes up very little of the space within the frame and is largely obscured by trees that add little if anything at all to the overall composition of the image. Furthermore, the horse is dead center in the frame and the image overall appears to be very flat. If the only reason that this qualifies as a Photo of the Day is because the horse is white, then that is a very poor reason. I expect images on here that are above and beyond the average Facebook post. Usually the photos here are breath taking and the best of the best. Instead of making me say "Wow" this image makes me say "Wow, I can't believe they chose that."
@Shane Hughes not all photos need to be technically perfect to be great. this one captured peoples imaginations. if that's the only reason it's on here, then why not. a huge percentage of people love it, including me. my first thought wasn't a tree is in the way or the lighting could be better... my first thought was "unicorn" even though it isn't at all. and Linda is right.. imagination is key sometimes.
