    Very friendly guys. These are two different horses. The first two are the same and the last two are the same. No, he's not wearing colored contacts :mrgreen: Poor guy had a blind eye. It never moved, and if you look just above the pupil, it's indented.

    First two shots have a medium amount of desaturation. Not sure why...I just liked it that way :blushing:

    Horse pics... Great!
    They are friendly creatures who even like ME to take their pictures when I see them.

    I just love this second photo here! That angle, tilt, the way the horse holds his head --- it is all perfect to me.

    I am not too fond of the partly desaturation in the first, but that is a personal thing (maybe it's also derived from envy? Since I don't know how it is being done? Ah well. No..... ;))

    I like how the desaturation in the first gives it a colder, bleaker feel - and with the snow on the mountains it makes the horse seem like a sort of tundra pony. Very cool :thumbup:

    Great shots. The last one is sad, yet slighty spooky at the same time.

    Thanks everyone!

    LaFoto, I simply desaturated the entire image slightly. I know you're using an older version of PS, but I'm sure you can find it. I go to >image >adjustments >hue/saturation Then I slide the saturation to a -number. I usually saturate/desaturate each color one at a time, but this one I just did the master.

    Woodsac ... as usual ... awesome. I love the colors in them, too. The blue of the sky is the perfect contrast to the white in the mountains and in the horsie ...
