Standing in the Shadows

I do sometimes take pictures of subjects other than landscapes :)

Another for the Flash of Red 2018, a month of black and white images with a flash of red on Valentine's Day, with the emphasis being on textures.
Wonderful, clear shot with nice details, composition, light

This is awesomw - so many textures! The rough wood of the door frame, the silky smoothness of his face, the deep shine of his eye. Really well done and A FAV!

Nice b&w. Love the textures.

This is really gorgeous- the light is spectacular and the way you've featured the horse by making the background so black is perfect (although I know that's mostly due to the light not necessarily manipulation on your part). fav!

Reminds me of an old TV show called Mr. Ed. The horse would talk to its owner from a stall and was often seen like this.

A simple composition beautifully done, nicely sharp and just the right contrast.

@robz Thank you - I go for bright sunshine if possible and use Nik Silver Efex with Elements - those filters are so useful! It's a free download to use in conjunction with Photoshop or Elements.
