....Did'a Hear That"....This image taken on a weekend road trip into the Sandhills of Central Nebraska, USA.
Notice the tilt of the ears and head, they have heard something. You will also notice the muscle defination of the 2 ranch horses, necessary for working cattle a full day and for grazing (you see the large pasture they are in). This is a pasture of native grass (never turned with a plow). I like the colors of the composition. If you travel to Nebraska I urge you to take the back roads and see the beautiful sites.
Thanks for looking in.

Well composed, & a humorous title. Good sharpness. Maybe I'd cut back a bit on saturation? Good symmetry between the 2 horses, & tfs!

I like this composition and as much as I often eliminate bland skies myself I think that the WS cropping leaves me with a closed feeling. In other words I get a sense of the prairie in your original version. I do like the additional contrast in the WS. I also like the way you caught these guys interacting together and the light really does show that they are worked often.

je découvre une jeune galerie et un amour ou une passion pour la nature. Une technique qu'il faudra affiner et TE est là pour çà, pour progresser au travers des critiques.

Two lovely animals!
They seem like happy too, and why shouldn't they be surrounded as they are with endless green pastures...
Attractive simplicity in composition, great colour palette as the horses contrast nicely with the grass!
