First time poster here, though I do skim the home page almost daily. I thought I would finally join and contribute. I don't have the best camera on the market but this is a portrait of my horse. Shot with a Canon 1000D and 18-55. Pretty much as basic as it gets.
Please feel free to comment and critique, I have some pretty tough skin. Particularly how do you like the processing? I bought a new monitor and I think I have it finally calibrated.
I took the suggestion and tried again with the post processing.
