    The trip didn't turn into the photo adventure I'd hoped it would, and
    additionally the shutter in my RB67 65mm lens gave up the ghost without
    informing me. I concentrated most of my "serious" shooting with that system
    and that lens in particular. Not a single image came out. I did some
    shooting on the moors as well as Cornwall and Devon with my F3HP. Here's
    one of those. Unfortunately, it's slightly underexposed. It's what I get
    for not testing velvia on the F3 before I went.

    If it were any MORE exposed, you'd likely have lost much of the pretty pink
    sky...

    It's not perfect, but I like it.
    It's a little soft, but the blown mane on the critters remind me of the long
    curly hair in a favorite shot of a young lady with similarly wind-blown
    hair. If these two were people, they could be a poster for a romantic
    movie. :)

    Initially, I thought a tighter crop would be helpful, but I think the wider
    shot points to the significance of their huddling together in a vast
    landscape. -Rule of thirds be danged!

  3. Well, I brightened it about 40% in Photoshop, and, while that brings out a
    lot more detail in the horses faces, and in the ground rocks & pebbles and
    the like, it really doesn't improve the overall photo. I like the moodiness
    of the original best......After all, if you've seen one horse's face, you've
    seen them all........

    I think the photo works fine exposed at it is. In this case, the sky
    makes the photo. The grass is green enough in the foreground. If it
    ain't broke, don't fix it!
