p.1 #1 · #390 The Window


Saw this mare gazing out her sunny stable window this morning, and I wondered what she was thinking. Most likely how much she'd like to be out in the pasture playing with the other horses... and she was within the hour.

Great capture. There's a contrasting sense of freedom in the window that smashes through the confines of the stable.

Such a beautiful horse, extreme contrast that captivates the viewer and she is balanced with the softness that frames the sharpness of the mare.
Wonderful entry.

Great shot, Beverly. Looking at the horse makes me wonder what its thinking about looking outside.

A Ha! Not just a pretty pic but one that has so much in it. It actually tells a story. I see you've studied that book well.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Thanks. I like your phrasing; really sums up the image in a visionary way.

Thanks, Klaus! Yes, I stood there wishing I was a horse whisperer.

A ha, Yakim, you are right! It is a storytelling image. I think I first came across that term in Brian Peterson's book, Understanding Exposure (great book). Actually I'm not swift enough to plan out a shot like this. I just shoot what strikes my fancy, and if it's just a nice shot, great, and if it's a storytelling image, all the nicer. Glad you like!

You've done very well as usual Beverley although I do find the foreground a tad distracting. I'd endorse the comments from others.

Thanks for the feedback, Bill! The foreground couldn't be helped, but after studying the photo and finally selecting it, I decided the foreground reinforced the horse's confinement by being so bold and obvious.

The window, the horse's gaze out the window, beautifully captured Beverly. Barbara

Not that book. I was referring to the "Why Strad keeps winning WA" book.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.
