    Default Difference of size

    Hello, this is a first post since a long time... nice to be back.

    I took this picture a few weeks ago and was amazed by the size and strengh of the horse. I found the kid to be a nice add to the image. What do you think?

    What a difference in size, indeed! What kind of horse it is? You might want to straighten the photo just a bit.
    I'm not sure, but it might make a nice panorama if you crop some off the bottom to close to the little boy's feet?
    Nice colors, too.

    I like the horse but having the kid in the pic is a distraction to me, particularly with the adult arm adjoined like that...

    It certainly is a damn big horse though!!!

    Ok, I appreciate the feedback, I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep the child there, really because of the arm. The opposition of size is impressive though!

    An interesting contrast in size.
    I agree with the idea of cropping the photo.
    Perhaps cloning out the adult arm would make it less distracting.

    Straightening the photo crops out most of the Mom. A quick clone takes care of the rest.

    I have a "fixed" version if you'd care for me to post it?

    Thanks for the info, I thought it was a working horse. If you want to post the fixed version, go ahead!

    I think you should have left the horse without the boy in the shot-
    You can see it is a large horse by the size of its hooves and in
    relation to the fence-
    Great shot of a working horse-

    Pretty good cloning job. But I think I agree about leaving the boy out. The fence alone will show how big the horse is. I got to see the Budweiser horses once, they are massive!

    You're right. I'd forgotten that was your intention.
