Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 21st August, 2012)
St Nat's school field
Photo: Andrew Fishburn (Canon EOS 5D)
Looks like a Gypsies horse
I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth. Looks like a Travellers pony??
Wow, very dramatic shot, Andrew.
Magnificent photograph of a magnificent creature!
Superb photo Andrew. There are lots of horses being 'dumped' these days. This one at least appears to be in good condition and well fed. Sadly many of them aren't.
What a beautiful Photo. Lovely.
An unusual photo all round but I like it.
Beautiful shot Andrew..doesn't he look proud.
Andrew,a superb,atmospheric photogragh ,
well done Andrew ,Stunning
uou have a good eye
Nice one Andrew,pin sharp and good detail well done.
"Oh to be in England now that summers here" !! Great, dramatic, shot. Thinking about it this wouldn't be nearly so dramatic with a clear blue sky, would it. Every cloud has a silver lining.
All around amazing photo.. Well done!!
i always like andrew fishburn's work and once again another gem.
Your right John Morris it wouldn't be nearly so dramatic with a clear blue sky and it woundn't be so dramatic if it hadnt been touched up on a computer
Thats the field I am certain we used to call "Dolly's Field" when I went to St. Nats. infants and juniors, if we had a set to we had to go into this field and have a go at each other, no kicking, biting scratching, and when one had had enough that was it, never no afters
It is a full frame camera, but could it produce this effect?
Is that the field where the races were held on the Saturday after walking day?
Beautiful old church and beautiful animal. Fantastic photo.
Stunning photo! Very dramatic, and you have captured the horse's curiosity brilliantly. Bet this photo would look good in b/w?
Like it. H.
Terrific picture of a French 'Big Mac'...............only kidding!!
Wow,that is some picture.Hope you managed to shelter from the rain.!
A horse with attitude.
Nice work. Even if there was some computer post processing (as someone mentioned) it doesn't diminish the impact of the composition and overall dramatic effect. Keep up the good work.
Super shot mate!
Thanks for your comments folks - a bit of photoshoppery going on there as you mentioned - the original shot came out too dark so I lightened up the horse, field and church. I also cheated a bit and got rid of the rope attached to the bridle and ground preventing the horse from making it's escape! I thought it gave a better shot without the rope, and hope it doesn't spoil it too much! Sadly, the horses have been taken away: I enjoyed their nayying, so to speak, when waking up in the morning as we live in the road down by St Nats.
This photo captures great atmospere and subject matter, good contrast!
Another good pic, Andrew. The trees sprouting from the tower of St Nat's are a sign of another congregation (vide St Catharine's) with a conflict between its needs as a Church, and its imposed duties towards its church building.
Great shot Andrew, such a dramatic sky, Love it
