[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My second image from last year's British and World Ploughing Championships.
This wonderful pair of Shires were pulling a plough being guided by the owner/farmer.

The original image shot in RAW format, After some cropping, I converted to B&W and adjusted the tones and increased contrast. Then colour popped the horses' manes to show the colourful ribbon used to decorate these fine beasts.

Hi Dai,
I regret somewhat the position of the animals that ended up getting their heads obscured. TF.

Hi Dai,
Love the clever low angle used it gives interesting dimension to the image. The color on the main creates interesting focal points. Good exposure and selective sharpness, good camera work.

Hi Dai, nice low pov and like the choice of b & w. It is a pity they didnt turn towards you so you got more of the face, maybe if you adjusted the shadows just a little the heads would have a little more detail. Fiona

Wonderful horses and a very nice shot. The B&W and subject gives an old world feel to the shot.
