As a person very involved with animal welfare, I am sad to see any animal that needs help and protection. Your image is a powerful one showing the struggles of animals especially in winter. Thanks for posting this image. 5*

@Shaun: I agree Shaun. It is heartbreaking to see animals (and all life) suffering or in need. Particularly from mankind induced mayhem. It is noble work that you are doing! Thankfully this horse is quite well cared for and was just enjoying some fresh winter air in his pasture when I snapped this image. Still, I thought visually it made for a compelling narrative on the struggles of nature.

Brutal weather for man and beast.

Excellent focus point on the foreground, leaving the horse out of focus. It made a great an impact.

@B. Thomas: Thanks Barbara. I posted the same photo to another group of more technical minded folks and they generally didn't like the image as it didn't fit the "rules of photography" well enough for their tastes. I think it is a good study on conveying something vs. just capturing something.
