Horse of A Different Color

Horse of A Different Color. David Hayes, 2013

I am always interested in shop windows....window shopping if you would. A well put together display is an art form...some times luring me into the shop, other times...not. Depends on the mood I'm in.

When I can, I like to take "snaps" of what's in a shop window. The lighting has to be with me...and I don't like looking too obvious doing so. This hobby horse caught my eye recently...sitting in a closed antique shop window. The lighting wasn't the greatest and there was a lot of reflection coming from the window. But I do like a challenge. Took me a bit to figure out what I wanted to do with the reflections and backgrounds...in the end, I do believe I got in right!

Here's the recipe:

1.) Paint Fx: Saturation, Blur (3 layers of this!)
2.) TouchReTouch
3.) Photo Studio Fx: Amsterdam, Texturize, Dirty Picture 2.

Gorgeous horse - very intriguing image as it pulls one back to - the ghosts again!! Love it - though I think your sadness is there in it? Take care and remember the sun will melt the snow!! Cheers!
