    I think it's an interesting image, but I should probably say read the guidelines first:

    Looks like a Unicorn - cool. Top left is a bit distracting though, maybe a bit more horse and a bit less background? Lead us in to the picture perhaps?

    I was wondering if the background was distracting...lol...but you answered that question. I also wanted to know if the hair (on the face) looked realistic b/c I had to edit out some dirt, etc.

    Sorry:hug::

    yeh it looks great, but, im not sure about the exposure, it seems very over exposed.

    the composition is great :)

    But I did do a little bit of diffuse glow on it.

    I played around with it and couldn't really crop it any other way i liked to avoid that background.

    What i would do tho is pump up the saturation and sharpen it a little bit.

    I was playing around with that image and i thaught this was kinda cool because the eyes are looking at eachother.

    im not a fan of this at all.

    maybe we could be more helpful if we saw your out-of-camera version (without post processing etc.)

    The background doesn't bother me at all. The exposure looks just fine as well. I would, however, like to see more of the horse's face. The current crop of just one eye leaves a lot to be desired.

    Oh...Thats not really a crop...its how the original was. I saw another photo on here (i think) of a horse's ear and eye like that and I just wanted to see if I could do it. I will try to get a full shot soon..... she's kinda shy tho.

    Beautiful animal!!! The crop seems too tight for me.
