Not the first past the winning post

My entry for our photo club competition at our annual photoclub dinner, subject being horses.
Didn't have anything recent so cropped this old shot of mother and foal taken many years ago at a stud, before my 365 days. Made sure the eye was on the third and managed to have a go in photoshop at deleting a diagonal black wire above their heads. It was very difficult and not perfect but better than leaving it in.
Didn't win anything, but received praise from the main man for my efforts which I was well pleased with!
You were taking good photos in those days too Jen.....love the way their heads follow the same line!

Its a neat photo of the horses - nice gentle face on the left and startled one on the right! Well done with your efforts!

Lovely photo, they look like an adult and an annoying child, love their expressions.

@paulaw I felt that he was thinking oh no it's getting nearer, can't remember how close I was!

Nice work, can't remember or see where that line was. Like the focus on the pony's eye and the position. Great catchlight too.
