    I really like #1 & especially #5. But I hate barbed wire. Hope you don't mind.

    2-4 look slightly under exposed. I like the shots though.

    Kunda did a nice job with masking the barbed wire, though. It looks nicer with out it.

    It was merely a crop. I hit the contrast just a smidgen as well. But then again, I'm a contrast of sorts, so I've been told.

    I can understand darker, but they just look a little underexposed. You can raise the brightness and add contrast to make them darker looking, and the picture would come out much better. I'd give an example, but I'm on my Linux box atm, so I don't have PS handy. Anyway, just my $.02

    With the last one, more of its face should be visible, especially the eyes, even if you want a mysterious dark look, the cluster of branches in front them is quite distracting.

    And second to last, the eyes are in complete shadows.

    Second shot, looks like a close-up doggie shot. The body of the white horse is completely compressed, making it look like a squinty pig.

    Third shot, unlike number 2, works okay for the brown horse, but there's a bar across it's nose.

    Number 1, I love it. No, not really, but the horses look so happy and pleasant that I barely have time to point out the crooked horizon. Also it could use some post-processing, but of course reshooting is always the best option if you could.

    Well it was more of a hill..

    and with the bars & branches across the face I wanted it to be like that otherwise I wouldof jumped the fence and took them. I took these pics months and months and months ago. And I'm sorry but I'm not going to travel that far to reshoot a horse to suit you.

    But thanks for you input.

    It's good your first attempt. The blotches are obvious, but you'll improve quickly if you keep trying.

    Edit: I'm not exactly looking forward for your reshoot, anywho. :>

    I like #1 and #5 the best. I definitely think #5 is more appealing after its been cropped. It gives it a more polished inviting look.
