I think it's a nice photo but the headstall being improperly fit pulling the bit too far back in the mouth is distracting for me. It takes away from the peaceful nature of the photograph.

I agree with the above. It's a very nice looking horse but it brings a bit of sadness to my mind with the bit so far back.

Otherwise...lighting and composition is nice.

Wonderfull use of light vs. dark, with the subject being so bright in relation to the clean dark background. Well done.

One thing I am curious about is the background itself. It looks good . . . maybe too good. I am looking for noise grain, and cannot detect any at all. I would like to know what camera you were using, and if the camera really did such a good job with the background, or if you used some type of noise reduction to clean it up. If no NR was used whatsoever, then I am extremely impressed with whatever body you used!


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Love the contrast, dof and framing of this subject. Nice capture.

I like this a lot - its interesting that so many find the bit distracting.

With about 15 years of riding experience, it looked perfectly natural to me, I always learned the "2 wrinkle rule" which is that a properly fitting bridle will have 2 wrinkles at the edge of the mouth EXACTLY like you show in your photo - but different styles of riding might be different?

I really like the picture. You did a great job!

The bit is too tight in my opinion as well. However, I imagine the definition of a couple wrinkles is different among people.
