Welcome - Do You Accept the Challenge?

As a photographer of horses...I am always running across images that I have taken that don't work for me as photographs, but I think could make wonderful inspiration for other Equine artists. So I have started this blog as a place to post these images and see if there are any of you out there wanting to take on the challenge. All of these are open to your own interpretation and be aware that others are free to use the images as well. there is no time limit on the challenge. I only ask that you give me photo credit if you decide to show or sell the work you have created, and I would love to see them as well. I would be happy to post jpegs of the work you do here on the blog with the reference photo in a new post. This way we all get to share in your vision. If you need a larger jpeg emailed to you contact me and I will send you one.

Some Favorite Shots that could be Great Paintings!











I assume that you all know that I expect you to create your backgrounds...The reason that may of these are unusable to me is because the backgrounds, foregrounds....etc make for poor fine art photographs!
