Merveilleuse prise de vue et excellente perspective. Magnifique troupeau de chevaux bien présenté dans un bel éclairage. Les différents tons de vert sont superbes et beau contraste avec les chevaux.

Zdravo Sergiy.Beautiful creatures that have shiny and attractive coats. Idyllic looking place with field flowers in the foreground and softly rolling green hills in the distance. An image of peace and plenty. Nuzhan je mir u cjelom svjetu. Pozdrav. Klaudio.

Another fine shot from your camera, with such a great feeling of the wide open spaces. Those horses, with the sunlight glancing off their richly coloured coats, make a beautiful colour combination with the greens. The valley looks so fertile and I imagine that the air is clean - I hope so! Wonderful work you are doing presenting the Caucasus like this.

This is one of your best landscapes recently - wonderful detail, colour and contrast on the horses. Ideal management of the exposure. Also, the background is absilutely beautiful and supports the photograph - sometimes your background is just there - without really workng for the frame, but this time it is excellent. Thanks and regards, Iain

Lovely clean and natural environment to rear horses, nice vivid grasses and colourful view in a sunny day, full with relaxing feel, distinct photo, well done.

I notice the horses seem to roam freely, but still sticking where the people are!
Beautiful animals, their colour contrasts so nicely with the green surroundings...
Interesting setting in the mountains of the Caucasus..!

These horses are splendid and I think that the quality of the environment in which live these Equidaes must contribute to the beauty of the coat... Nice and bright photograph, I like contrasts very much with this beautiful green of heights. A refreshing landscape, thank you Sergiy.
With all my friendships and a very good evening,

The beauty of these horses that graze in the valley combines with the natural beauty of the landscape, in an image very bucolic and full of life.
The vivid green colors in the mountains add a lot of chromatic power to the photo, and the composition is perfectly organized, I like the obtained result.
The note is nicely informative.
A beautiful work, my friend.
