Daily Deviation

Given 2009-06-19
Lipizzaner Stallion by *La-Vita-a-Bella captures the grace of a show with one of the most beautiful horses in the world, according to many. I personally love the movement and the light in it. Enjoy! :)

The composition and lighting on this piece could not be better, in my opinion. The spirit of the horse, and the control of the rider are exceptionally apparent, which I think it difficult to catch on still photo. The angle of the horse is wonderful, and its expression is seen clearly. I am even a fan of the negative space to the left of the image. It seems to let us know there's more coming. I feel that the black and white was a perfect choice for such an image. Absolutely gorgeous, and the stallion and his task are well represented. The only reason I did not give high originality points, is because I've seen this sort of image many times, but please don't feel that is a negative thing. You did it as good or better than anyone else i've seen.
What do you think?

Thanks! They performed in a very dark auditorium and I was using a very low-quality lens (the Sigma 70-300mm) but it came out very well. :)
