Default His first ride

Couldn't decide where to post this one...People? Animals & Pets? Finally decided that it might fit best in this category. Taken outside of Bozeman in Big Sky Country. C&C welcome

A compelling moment captured!

Since you asked for C&C's, a couple of technical comments:
1. The lighting seems a bit harsh and contrasty.
2. I would have cropped to include the entire horse (vs. the legs cropped).

Thanks Jehan

It was a quick grab shot with a telephoto lens. I had no time and nowhere to back up in the forest and they just briefly rode through that clearing in the sunlight. Re: the "contrasty" look, it was midday and, in that clear, high country air, the contrast was unavoidable. I did try to lighten it a bit in PS.

Nice memories. You can crop from the original, but you'll lose the forest:

I've visited your galleries several times, great stuff.....
