Oh, good heavens . . . this is absolutely gorgeous. (the only thing that could make this better is if I had been lucky enough to take it!) Great capture, Tom.
Thanks, Kim. I played with that image a thousand times before settling on a midnight effect. Suddenly, it worked! I love horses though they make me nervous--anything larger than me is cause for concern! This also includes cattle, alligators, elephants and dinosaurs.
Yep--them dinosaurs are the worst
Horse? Really? Hmmmm... I've tried and tried and that isn't what I see at all. Very interesting image ;-)
Awesome. Horse people will want that on their wall.
So, Linda, what do you see if you don't see a horse?Dan -- Let us hope so.
Linda: Don't feel bad ...I couldn't see it at first, either!
OK, I might as well 'fess up. I saw a female nude - woman on the right, looking down. Windblown hair.Dang! I thought. Spring's come to Kansas for sure! I can see the horse now,sort of. But I really have to work at it. I still see the woman when I glance at it.
Linda -- I can only wish I'd had the opportunity to shoot a female nude. Or a nude female. Whatever.
It took me a minute to see the horse too. Af first glance I saw lightening. Now I'm squinting and trying to see a nude. It is a stunning photo, no matter what you see in it. I like that I had to look closer, though I'm not sure it wasn't because my eyes are getting worse. It's different from your average horse photo, that's for sure.
Yeah, my mind sure went straight to the nude at first glance - now it's just that horse saying 'what are YOU looking at?' - but it's gorgeous image in every way.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments. I do wonder, however, if the photographers among my readers have dirty minds...
