Weekly Photo

Here is a fresh photo that I shot on May 11 but just got around to processing. I was driving near Turner Valley when I saw this horse standing in a field. I was drawn by the horse’s colours and spun the car around and made a quick snapshot with a hand held 70-200mm lens (1/640 at f5). I jumped back in the vehicle and was off. I totally forgot about the shot until I downloaded the images later. I like the image because the horse is sharp against a painterly blurred background. To draw more attention to the horse I selected the background and desaturated the colours and added a little more blur in Photoshop.

  1. A memorable photograph. A slice of Americana. Fine art at it’s very best.

  2. WOW! Your imagery is nothing less than that of Michelangelo. I am always in awe. Testament to ALWAYS having your camera with you – never know what might appear just around the corner.

  3. Hi Darwin,

    The post-processing work really does make the horse stand out from the background. It is a beautiful horse. The image has a nice “texture” to it with the grass and trees and a peaceful feel to it.

    I have been a huge fan of your work for a long time. This is a stunning image. I cant take my eyes off it.

    I have been reading your articals in Outdoor Photography Canada for a long time and have learned a long from them.
