Horse Eye by UnUnPentium115 Horse Eye by UnUnPentium115
Update on 21.11.2008: Update of the picture: I started the editing from scratch and then increased quality, colors and did some minor retouching of dirt. I also changed the framing style to my new one. Now the quality is good enough to finally be sold as a print!

_________

I consider this one as my best photo. It has the best concept and the most interesting one: I am reflecting in the eye of a horse. Behind me you can see the wonderful scenery of Lower Austria. This is no photoshop work.

Full-View highly recommended


If you like the concept of "Horse Eye" check these very similar deviations out:
Horse Eye Two
Horse Eye Three
Spring View

My internal ranking
:star::star::star::star::star: - A very unique photo, which I'm really proud of! It definetely deserves 5 full stars!



_________

Wow. The detail, even in the reflection, is phenomenal. It deserves every one of those 5 stars, and perhaps more. Fantastic job!

I love this photo - the fact that you didn't try and hide you in the pic makes it feel to me as if the horses eye is the lens and he's taking a photo of you, and I love that - not to mention how beautiful and clear his eye is, the composition......:)
