The Gesture

Posted by

I have another photograph of this scene in which the light and the color is better, but the horse had not yet wandered in. The gesture of the horse, I think, makes the photograph.

wonderful colors, great elements - the horse, the remains of the old fence, and the gorgeous trees - all create beautiful and special mood here.

Indeed, the horse gives us a good feeling with her dress fall! Fully integrated in the picture! The tones are very attractive and it's always a wonderful job.

Such wonderful colors Jack, how luminous and bright.
They beautifully contrast with the blue background here. The presence of the horse adds a lot.
He looks free and wild. What a delight to catch (and see) such a scene !

Yes, the horse adds extra interest to the image. I love the flaming colors of the trees... I am reminded of a row of torches.

Great. I love the fact we have a common field in a not so spectacular landscape, but the whole magnifed by this blazing bouquet of trees.

Wonderful colour contrast between the warm autumn colours in the foreground and the cool blue of the mountains in the background! Well done Jack! ;-)

Incredible colours with the gold and cool blues of the background. I like the way the horse adds a sense of scale.

The blue mountains make the most amazing backdrop for these colours. Magnificent !~

I agree Jack. I always find if there is some living creature, other than the flora, it adds to any photograph. This one is no exception. Beautiful
