    Well, I'm also a beginner, and the only contest I ever enter is the county fair :lol:, and I dont know anything about the contest you're entering (so really, should I even be giving you advice? :er:), but I've seen a lot of these. But theres nothing new under the sun, so...

    Yours is nice and clear. But it bothers me (and its probably just me) that the horses forehead goes nearly straight down through the picture, instead of sloping, because when I think of horses I think of their forehead sloping because of the way their head is attached to their neck. I know it's just how the horse is holding his head in this picture, though. It's probably just me, though.

    I guess I dont have any strong feeling about it either way.

    Good luck on your contest! :) And welcome to TPF.

    It would be better if you post the actual picture. Some of us don't have facebook and/or are blocked by our work from accessing the site.

    Thank you for letting us know it's a horse.

    To answer your question: No, I don't think you have any chance of winning.

    Yeah...well...I saw an "X" at one point, tried to copy the URL into a new window, and got a Explorer error. Now I don't even see the red X :(

    I agree that the straight vertical line of the horse's head makes the photo look weird, the two halves of the photo look very detached from each other.
