The Day The Horse Stood Still...

And God Said; 'Let There Be Light!'

And the Horse Said; 'Heavenly Be Thy Glory!, Thank You for letting me Bathe in Your Light! For I Get Treated to This Every Morning, OH, THANK YOU ME LORD THANK YOU!'

Well Folks, talk about being at the right place at the right time, THIS is the actual view I came across while driving through a farmland in New Jersey (Marble Hill Farm) time, about 8 AM or so....

It was Dense Fog and the sun was gleaming through it, there, over that hill, I was AWE STRUCK! as I saw this horse just Standing Absolutely Still, as if in a trance, or in Deep Meditation with God! I immediately pulled over, got my camera out, and shot about 50 to 75 stills!, I thought along with the Horse, God has treated me to something really DIVINE, Be Happy , Live and Let Live please, Let's all Live in Peace.

The color tones were adjusted in Photomatix, Lightroom AND Photoshop....

This was shot Handheld, with an older Nikon D80 Camera, Lens 18-135mm 3.5-5.6G

And Remember, Every Camera Manufacturer has a blend of preset settings that automatically convert your raw images to standard images, unless of course you shoot in RAW format, then YOU have the control to change EVERY aspect of your photo and RE-DEVELOP it the way YOU want it. The Lens is the Eye of your Camera, the Brand, Make and Model is the Heart of your camera, BUT behind every good image, Lies YOUR capability to Compose, Shoot, and Edit Photos. In essence, Digital Developing, like the good old (Negatives) Celluloid Developers, except, now we use editing software instead of Chemicals! Happy Snapping!, Good Luck to All :-)
