The light and mist give this shot bags of atmosphere, very nice capture

Wow, thank you all so much for the wonderful comments
Yes, she's my horse and when I saw the mist and her steamy breath, I thought : must get the camera ! The shot was into the sun, luckily not too strong.
No PP except cropping and to remove an unsightly bit of electric fencing tape !

I've added the EXIF data (I think i can get lost when transferring from Flickr) and I was using my DL 55-300 handheld.

This one catches the eye immediately and is even better when viewed large. Very good portrait, sharp, well composed and shot in lovely light.
