Horse in Red

I love the back-lighting on this horse. He was patiently waiting for the care taker to take him for a walk in front of a red barn. So I know he was excited. I was intrigued by his calm and happy expression. Originally, he was wearing a halter in the reference photo, but I eliminated it. I also abstracted background to simplify the composition.
