horses. Taken in October of 2001
Re: windmill and horse
Hi Sharon,

great pic. I love the way the horse (which is relatively
small) in the foreground appears to fill the frame while the
windmill (which is relatively large) is made to appear
small. Also the fact that you have drawn some sort of
relationship between these two in the frame (I guess because
of the way the horse is facing).

Here's how I would have presented the frame to maybe
emphasize these relationships some more. First I would have
rotated the frame a degree or two to the left so that the
viewer isn't distracted by a non-vertical windmill. Second I
would have cropped out some of the non-essential shed
structures so as to emphahsize the two main elements. Lastly
I would have cropped out the sky so as to center the main
elements. Here is how that would look.

Anyway, I really like you picture!

Re: windmill and horse
Hi Stu,
I like the changes you suggested, I am always looking for
input on how to do things different. I was lucky the horse
decided to turn his head, I was on my knees in front of
him (about 2 arms length) and looking up to try get the
windmill in the back ground and the horse kept wanting to
come closer and sniff the camera - which kept making us get
farther away from the windmill. This is something I have
been practicing with so I can take photos of my
grandchildren and include whole buildings, flag poles,
firetrucks etc.

Thanks again for the input
