    I was out the other day snapping pictures of the saddle herd; Sunnup {my Grandpa's horse} was posing for me. These were taken at the full extent of my FZ18's 18X zoom, no tripod.

    And Jesse James, a really photogenic horse. He's big and thick and sweet as can be, with a great demeanor and a really wild-fella type look to him.

    Here are a couple shots of his eye:

    Horses are hard to set up for a pose, and they usually either put their butt to you or have their nose all up in the camera, so I was pretty pleased with what I got here. C&C welcome and appreciated!

    45 views and no comments?
    That's sad.
    My feelings are hurt.
    I'm holding a grudge against ya'll.
    Hmph.

    You have every reason to be very please with the outcome of your photography, I best like the last photo, it is special. Also the light you had when you took the third/fourth (crop of 3) was especially pleasing and makes his (?) coat shine nicely. Very well done.

    Oh. Another thought:

    If you like to look a people's photos of horses, you might be interested in this_theme_thread_on_horses, which has been up and running since November 2004, so many a link no longer exists, but let that fact not deter you from waiting until it's built itself up and then look at the photos :D.

    Thank you for such kind words! I am very fond of the last photo myself, thank you. I decided Jesse would be the perfect subject for the shot I had in mind there; he has a beautiful eye shape, those long whiskers, and his coloring works well with the black and white, which I think adds a real element and feel to the shot.

    I must say, the lighting was really nice that evening, but I did cheat a little and set my FZ18 on "warm" tone. =P

    Again, thank you![FONT]
