This is a portrait of our grandaughter’s latest acquisition. He is a very handsome fella whom she hopes with familiarization and bonding will take her on the the next step in her career as a three day eventer. She is only 15 and is doing very well.

Taken with Nikon D5000 18 – 200 lens and texturized in Topaz, onOne and CS3

I am 71 years young, and getting younger thanks to the new skills I am learning from the wonderful red bubble community. I came here as a competent photographer, no more, and discovered all the joys of manipulation. I now work for hours creating unique images from my photographs and then submit them for the never failing kind comments from the wonderful friends I have met on red bubble.

    Your grand daughter must be thrilled with this image. It has all the charms of a Degas.

  • He is really very handsome and very cheeky. He had to have an operation on one of his legs and his previous owner pushed him too soon and too hard. Erin and her instructor have rescued him and during the past few months have gently nursed him back to health. He has great potential and they are hoping that his courage and character will overcome his setback. Thank you so much for the lovely comment and fave Sue, I really do appreciate them. Alma xx

    He’s a real beaut Alma! And the texture is wonderful, makes for a striking work of art.

  • Thank you so much Maree. He is Erin’s great hope for the future, I hope he is as kind to her as her present mare, Izzy, is. She has a wonderful rapport with animals so everything crossed. Thank you for the fave too, I really appreciate that. Alma xx
