Congratulations to Drew23 for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 3 votes - View Previous Winners


Just recently moved up to WA from CA and now had the perfect excuse to get a powerpack - shoot in amazing scenery. Shot a few shots this past weekend and this one felt better than the other ones.

C&C welcome

Update: added the revised one and some behind the scenes

This is almost too good for words.

I said WOW out loud when the image loaded.

Love the post processing. Is that custom or did you use a particular action?

Custom. Just wasn't getting the effect I wanted after testing a few actions so just started to layer different looks.

Beautiful work, only nit I have is placement of the horn on the horse. To me it looks like it should be lower, just above the eyes on the forehead.

this photo would be tremendous without the horn, very well done. The horn feels fake, doens't look real, and in my opinion isn't needed in what is already a fantastic capture.

Love this! Tend to agree on the unicorn, not really necessary.

@douter That not you mentioned is exactly the reason why I posted here so thank you. Youíre absolutely right in the placement of the horn. Iíll make that adjustment.

@vcook@ @friscoron Thank you for the kind words! The concept of the shoot was supposed to be a fairy tale and my daughter loves unicorns so hence the unicorn but your critiques are actually on point. Maybe I didnít sell it the fairy tale concept enough. Perhaps it needs to be more obvious that itís a fairy tale piece. In addition, I will definitely play with a version that removes the horn to go for a general mystical concept. Thank you guys!

Beautiful image!

Great location, super lighting, model is precious, and the horse is pretty too.

Nice job on the post-processing.

Thanks for sharing.

While I agree with the placement of the horn being lower, I'd say leave it. It was obvious you made it for your daughter, let her have her moment with the unicorn. What little girl doesn't love them. Great work. Love your layering effect.

This is simply outstanding. I agree with the placement of the horn, but I would like to see it kept. If anything else, making it look more, organic if you will, may improve the intent of the shot.

@gregfixit Thank you! The processing took 4-5 hours so it means a lot when someone appreciates the outcome

@JSaun Thank you very much for the compliment and feedback! I'm fixing that horn as I type this.

Just curious if you thought about removing the "pile" under the unicorn?

Can't help imagining that it would take it to another, cleaner level if it were gone.

My eye is always drawn to it.

@gheller That's a great call out. Now I can't seem to take my eyes off it. Will address it.
