Goodbye Horses

This was taken on a beautiful September morning close to my house at the end of of a fruitless search for a nice morning capture. Goodbye horses, Rehweiler Germany.

I love everything about the shot except it is way too oversharpened for my tastes.

Thanks for the comments. It may be a bit over sharpened! I kept going back and forth.

My vote for this one too. I does look too sharp, but easy to fix. I sometimes get that, when I change image size for the internet and select Bicubic Sherper.

I join the crowd! Beautiful image with wonderful contrast but the over-sharpening is obvious!

Very good lighting and composition. I like te way the horse balances the road.

Another lovely image the light is very good, good tonal range you have great detail and textures but i feel you've over cooked the sharpening a little...all in all great mono.

Lovely pastoral scene, great post-processing (except for over sharpening).

Have you tried to flip the image? I think it would greatly improve the composition. This way two things lead to the sun first and foremost: being the brightest part, and the road itself. This kind of sidetracks the horse. Flipping would lead first to the horse and then continue exploring the rest.

It appears there was a split toning applied. It also seems it left some color cast in the sky?
