EDIT: Well I tried again and I like it much better now! Slight diffuse glow added, noise adjusted, unsharp mask, and sharpened with red added.

I'm really fond of this photo! Serena was actually yawning but to me it looks like she's whispering to Arystana.=) It's a bit soft due to me trying to fix the noise content.:S

Alright, so, viewing your photos like I just promised :)

This is absolutely lovely ^_^ You've got some nice photography!
And I love how the mare just looks like she's whispering indeed. That's so cute.

I also like the soft effect :3

i agree that this is a great photo and you should try to get it published. you asked for a crit so i'll list everything i'd change about it.

i'd get rid of the light band at the top. clone it out. same for the hay bits in the foal's whiskers. i'd like to see the whites less washed out and perhaps a bit livelier color. i'd do some more contrast and less brightness on the neck specifically and i'd like to see less of a red hue over the whole thing. levels: up with the green, down with the blue and red.

here's what i'd have it look like: [link]

with all that said, i really do love it and you had it almost perfect in my opinion. i'll note you on the publishing thing.

Arystana is the foal.=) Serena is the dam. I have one further back in my gallery. She's grazing with Finesse.

i'm really fond of it too! it's got great composition and the foal really looks like she is really taking her mothers advice dearly, great example of personification through photography. :nod: great, great shot, and the softness is a nice touch!
