8/11/12 - Horses in the late evening light; best viewed in the largest size. I took this a few weeks ago in South Dakota and intended to use it as a daily and then forgot about it. We were out for a bike ride and I saw these horses, so I rode back to the RV and got my camera and walked back. I've seen other folks images of horses with lovely backlighting and when I saw the light o the meadow and behind the horses, I knew I had to get some shots of this.
You folks were so kind to me about my bald eagle photo. Thanks you so much for making it the #1 shot for the day. There have been so many wonderful eagle shots on smugmug in the past; I don't think mine even compares to many of those, but I do so appreciate your response to my photo. Thanks, too, for the suggestions about reducing the highlights on the head. You were certainly on target with those. I already had lowered the highlights; unfortunately, I overexposed the head on my eagle shots, even though I did focus on the eye. I should probably have used the exposure comp to reduce the highlights in camera but I did not think of it in the excitement of watching the eagle. I actually washed out the highlights a bit on the head in most of my shots and wasn't able to bring them back in RAW as much as I'd have liked.
Have a great day! Feel free to leave constructive comments, as I am always looking for ways I can improve my skills.
