Very, very nice, Louis. I have a feeling you are used to this view!
Louis: Thanks Ginnie, yes I am. I was trying something I have seen at Kathryn's the past week. Light outlining of silhouetted objects.

It feels very early Louis. Great shot.
Louis: Thanks Gale - it was made a bit earlier by underexposing. It was still 07:00

Stunner Louis, I love the sepia, the silhouettes are very strong, the little touch of sun on the horse back and fence does it for me.
Louis: Thanks Astrid. I was trying something I have seen at Kathryn's the past week. Light outlining of silhouetted objects.
Great shot ... I go along with Astrid's words. richard
Louis: Thanks Richard. I was trying something I have seen at Kathryn's the past week. Light outlining of silhouetted objects.
She is just a little bit dark, Louis, but the forms and silhouettes that are guessed marked by the light are charming! I like the atmosphere! (Opps the cables always bothering! wink
Louis: Thank you José-Angel. I have delibertaely underexposed half against the sun. I was after silhouettes with light outlines. It is OK. The cables did not bother. They are high above and behind the riders. tongue
Great shot Louis. Sepia gives a very nive atmosphere
Louis: Thanks Richard. It does help with the early morning atmosphere.

I agree with Astrid- a wonderful atmosphere early in the morning, short after the starting, full of expectations! The morning sky in Africa must be quite more impressive than in Europe, I saw such a brown- red sepia sky only in the Sinai mountains. (North-Africa)!
Louis: Thank you Philine. The picture looks darker than reality. I have deliberately underexposed half against the sun. I have added a layer of sepia like colour to surpress the artifacting that I picked up from the shooting against the sun. The colour is now darker than reality.

great effect, was this an evening shot, relatively high iso plus shutter speed.
Louis: Thank you Rory. Early morning, with the rising sun just touching some objects. I have deliberately underexposed half against the sun to get the light outlines.

I agree with Astrid - this is very cool. The light on the horse to the right....mmmmm I like grin
Louis: Thanks Aksel - this was the first time that I have started planning to obtain a certain effect long before pushing the shutter button.
I like very much the effect here Louis, nice shadows !
Louis: Thank you Zebigleb - I like this picture myself
