If you said the foal and the horse in this image are not real, you’re absolutely right. (And this wasn’t shot on April Foals Day, either!)
The scenes are skilfully painted on to both of them. The painting on the foal depicts a man and a horse in a paddock, while the other painting depicts the famous victory of Media Puzzle in the 2002 Melbourne Cup.
This was shot outside the Australian Racing Museum in 2002.
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/350 sec, ISO 200, focal length 125mm.
