Lovely "portrait" of this fashion-forward horse! As Noel mentioned, the horse looks like it just stepped out of a hair salon. Interesting compo and good focus, too. I like that the sky has no color - very indicative of Iceland in winter.
All the best,

I really like this one - it's something about the right composition and nice contrast. The scenery seems to be covered by mist in the distance and it helps to draw attention to the details in the foreground and the Temple. Great light and DOF.

Amazing capture, especially for a scan! Very good quality - sharpness, light, colors. The scene looks so peaceful, nothing seemed to foretell such a disaster. Even though, the darkened cloudy sky and the bright orange light of the sunset create a dramatic intense eerie mood. Or maybe I am reading too much into it after your note.

Thanks for sharing photos of this most unusual creature you found in the desert! I think I saw one of those in some zoo, but to see it photographed in its natural habitat, just enjoying its life in the wild, is really nice. Very well-equipped and well-adjusted animal. Love the portrait of it, as well. He didn't seem thrilled to be discovered like that:)
Lovely colors and sharpness.
Have a great weekend,

This image really "jumped out" at me due to its strange color sky, even though the rest of the colors look quite natural. Were the clouds really this beautiful lavender hue that day? Anyway, it is unusual and very pretty. I like it. Overall, lovely rural scene.

I like the end result of your using all those filters - fantastic unreal effect, like a cityscape from a dream or some alternate reality. The purple and red is a really eye-catching combination. The lights dotting the image brighten it up nicely.
Have a good weekend!
Chess in Union Square by worldcitizen (7878)

Union Square is one of my favorite places in the city, too. Actually I was in that square just 2 days after you took this shot. Nice example of every day life in this always busy - day and night - spot. Those masks seem to be very popular these days - I see them everywhere. Very interesting idea to put them on chess pieces. TFS.
