A very nice quality photo. Like a watercolour, soft. I would comment that the focus of interest is obscoured by the branch, maybe you could try cloning it out Sergio. Good shot.

Lovely Light

I just love the delicate background against the raw strength and speed of the horses. I also think that the foreground branch disrupts the picture. The only other comment I would make is that maybe the picture was snapped a fraction of a second too early or late as none of the horses captures a focus area. Of course, this isn't always easy with the 8080 and it's constant refocusing slowing things down.

There truly is more to love about this photo than to pick on.

Thank you Jim, Even whith dsrl in this cases, like many photographer, I dont use autofocus, and 8080 work very well e just speed. I have other shots of the horses in 99% ok, but J like this one because is inusual. Best regards..

I like this version better than the other one. The horses all seem to be worried or scared in the one that is the top image, here they seem to be more curious, so the photo is more relaxed. I also like the dreamy quality created by the dust and close up of the muscle movement.
