Harriman State Park Horses

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Terri French, Jun 6, 2005.

  1. On Saturday we took a three mile walk through part of Harriman State Park in Idaho. Part of the hike took us through a horse ranch. These horses are used for horse rides that you can purchase for a tour through the park. What a place for these horses to live. Such beautiful country. The colors were so vivid with the light coming through the clouds. It was a very fun day.

    I have only been converting Raw for a couple of months and have many questions about it. Here I was underexposing to keep the highlights in the clouds. Did I underexpose too much? Did I do ok at bringing out the shadows?

    We also saw a moose--although very far away.

    You are so kind to always look and comment. I have got to spend more time commenting on other's work. You set a good example!!!!!
  6. Nice Captures Terri!! It really does look like good horse country. :)  :)  I'm suprised to see the young moose out in the open like that - usually they stay seem to stay closer to the trees around here.

    Thanks for sharing.
  7. Hi Nikam,
    That moose surprised us too. I have never seen one out in the open like that before. As far as the horses--I think they have a most wonderful place to live, although they must be moved somewhere else in the winter. That area gets a great deal of snow.

    That's just what I said when I was there, "If I was a horse I would want to live here!!!!"

    And Greg--thanks for your comment. It was tricky keeping the clouds. I wish I could have a bit more contrast in them--but that is photoshop beyond my abilities!!

    Your exposures look spot on to me. I wouldn't change a thing. Your post processing looks very good as well.

    Excellent series.
