Sorry for the clichéd title, but it was misty! 90% de-saturated

Luke from Spokane Washington, United States

Impressive work horses!

Aaw it's a lovely title and fits very well. I love the desaturation too, it enhances the dreaminess of this view.

Ainsley from Derbyshire, United Kingdom

Great presentation and captive title. Really like this one.

ursulakatariina from Leixlip, Ireland

Superb! This should be framed and hung on a wall. Absolutely wonderful work.
5 stars for this.

You did well, I like the look.

Tinx from Kuressaare, Estonia

Very good!

Jypyä Pop from Turku, Finland

There were horses and a man certainly enough. Plowing is not the lightest work either.

Jolie prise ! Je te souhaite une agréable journée

J.R. from Urasoe City, Japan

Love those horses, the way you processed this is cool

Richard from Ellemford, United Kingdom

Stunning image, my favourite shot of the day!

13 Oct 2012 10:29am

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

The cliché works, it's a beautiful image and the processing is perfect

13 Oct 2012 12:40pm

@Doug: Doug, this was the shot that I was busting a gut to give more contrast too. I'm glad I didn't, but it took a lot of will power!

Othersideblue from Kerman, Iran

An impressive reminder of the past. The mist has helped in bringing out the atmosphere of the past in your scene.

Christine from Ellemford, United Kingdom

Love it, 5*****

13 Oct 2012 12:48pm

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

Beautiful, Chris, and I can see how you might be pulled to give it more contrast, but I'm glad you didn't. Your PP is perfect ***** and that is one, long 'row to hoe' ... just couldn't resist.

Nicou from Sion, Switzerland

A l'ancienne la charrue tirée par ces chevaux cossus, sueprbe compo et scène j'aodre.

gerard1948 from Santiago de Compostela, Spain

With this image you take me in my childhood, it is exactly like that in my memories. An excellent photo. I love the treatment.

13 Oct 2012 3:55pm

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

A perfect image ... Men and horses fighting together ... Beautiful scene ...!

13 Oct 2012 4:26pm

SalSa from Tehran, Iran

It is really good B&W ...with nice contrast

franz from Baden, Austria

great processing, reminiscent of the past that wasn't always "the good old days" ...

13 Oct 2012 6:24pm

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

I like the treatment - the POV is excellent. What caught my eye especially was the stepping of the horses.

13 Oct 2012 6:39pm

Mooie from Vancouver, Canada

I like the effect of the processing - the bare tint of colour serves well! It must be pretty cool out for that gentleman to be doing all that hard work with all those clothes on!

13 Oct 2012 8:55pm

@Mooie: It was quite a chilly day, and the wet, misty air was cooling everyone off

Ted from South Wales, United Kingdom

nicely vintage!

Baldwin from Bejuma, Venezuela

These workhorses are really impressive ... A great shot of this beautiful rural scene !!! Excellent de-saturation treatment and fitting title ...

David from Avranches, France

Cracking shot.

shooter from United Kingdom

Super shot my only minor point would have been not to have framed the guy with the plough so tightly, that said it's a great record shot.

14 Oct 2012 4:11pm

@shooter: Yep, good point, it's a habit that I have to get in too close, and not show the context of the shot, however, in mitigation m'lud, there was a brand new shiny Landrover just to the left which was too big in the frame to clone out,but, I do like the occasional nudge that I need to give more context, so I welcome the critique

The Mouse from Glasgow, United Kingdom

It looks original, just the blokes clothes make it modern

14 Oct 2012 9:34pm

@The Mouse: One of the things that I wanted to get was a bloke who "Looked right" His hairstyle was reminiscent(at least to me) of the neat, but greased back, look that men of his age had back in the 1950's and 60's, so whilst it's clearly not 1750, I was happy that it could be 1950.

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

Agree with The Mouse on the guy's outfit - a smock would have been the thing ! Other than that, superb.
