The Horse


Photo Information
I took this a few years ago and it remained as a forgotten colour image until recently when I went through past pictures and realised this could be a much better b & w.

Thanks Paul.

For anyone interested, I used converted to b&w using an orange filter which lightened the brown horse slightly and darkened the clouds because they had a blue-ish tinge. I then applied local tone mapping for increased contrast. No further processing or sharpening was applied.
