I love horses!



On #1 - I think your edit is a bit too dark and contrasty. I would step back a little so you don't crop so close. I think the exposure looks fine for the lighting as it is.



#2 - I actually prefer your original composition to the edited crop.

I seriously love Vampire Diaries for providing me with such awesome f**king music.

They were actually walking towards us as I shot the pics. We just recently found out that they hang out on some land behind our apartment complex.



ETA: Thanks Brandi for the input. :D

Understandable; in that case I probably just wouldn't consider that particular image a keeper personally. Sometimes shots just don't turn out how I'd like.

I doubt you'll hear much from me this weekend. It's about to be insanity. I've basically felt like mega shit all day (super nauseous) and I feel just down in the dumps and run down. Next week is actually going to suck for me anyway since I have a lot to do and my husband will be out of town Mon - Thurs. Sigh. I'm so tired.

Which one?



Yea I was just having a little fun. I hadn't shot any photos other than the ones I take at DS's football games and I'm still trying to get to know my camera until I can get a new one. :D

The one where it's cropped super close. You asked for feedback on the photos, so I gave it to you. Do with it what you'd like. If you'd prefer me not give you my opinion, I'm happy not to.

Wow I wasn't saying that..I actually value your opinion more so than you may think. Like I said since I have joined this thread I have learned something new everyday.



Thanks again for the feedback.

I've decided that just as something fun I'm going to try some pics with sparklers over the weekend my question is should I set my shutter to "Bulb" or just a slower speed like 4'?? And what would you recommend for white balance

I got to see the light and some of the exposure and then I went to bed. I wish my eyes would have stayed open to be able to see more! It's too bad that lots of the good stuff happen middle of the night for me! :(
