Default Horse Looking Outside ( ... in a spring sunny afternoon )

Today I went to the racetrack. I wanted to show to my son some horses and we went into the stables.

The spring sun and the way this horse was looking outside suggested me this shot and the further PS elaboration :



P.S. :
Layer 0
- Original Shot
- Rotation
- Crop
Layer 1
- Duplication of Layer 0
- Diffuse Glow ( Black and White ) - It took several trials to find the good parameter mix for my tastes
- Erasing with a big soft brush, opacity set to 50%,30% depending on zones, of the horse parts to partially reveal the details of Layer 0
Unified Layers
- Manual level adjustment

Very intriguing photo, brtsergio

I really like how your horse seems to be "anticipating the day."

WOW Sergio, I love this shot. What you did with light is absolutely gorgeous!
I must use PS beyond levels and sharpening

Really cool shot! Being a hrose person it looks to me to be a belgian or something of that sort. I highly doubt that big guy would be raced! (They're a draft breed!)

The lighting is amazing! Wanna come take some portraits of my horse for me?! haha!

Thanx everybody for your nice appreciations.

Discoduette, yes, that is definitly not a racing horse.

Those stables hold both racing breeds and draft (working) breeds.

Even if the shot does not show too much the legs are too stocky as well as its build to be a racing horse.

I honestly don't know if it is a belgian breed , though.
Looks like :

even if in reality it seemed more stocky to me.

But I'm not an expert about all of the breeds of these noble animals :

Beside joking, thanx, I take it as a compliment
