Just a bit of fun and to find out how rusty I am in Photoshop, I've taken a pony out of this image, can you tell where? absolutely no prizes for guessing correctly

The bottom of his belly looks a little blurred so Im going to guess there?

But that looks like a pretty good job to me!

I am going to go out on a limb and propose that it was easy to spot and hope that I am not making a fool out of myself ^^

Just under the mouth of the horse which is in the foreground, there are two grass spots which are identical, this is a bit strange for nature and the one to the right is slightly less sharp so I am guessing the pony was under there?

Fingers crossed :D

It's a very nice shot btw ;)

i was thinking about exactly same thing.
but also, front left leg (on image on right) is kinda strange.

To me the one behind was spoiling the image so i set about taking it out. The duplicate mound of grass was where I moved the other horse in the BG over.

So you all spotted areas that were heavily retouched so i need to get some practice in :)

jkstacey, I really like this and the photo you've submitted to this months assignment. A whole lot actually. Care to post your specs and post process? Seem to be an exposure blend of some sort but I could be way out to lunch on that.

Thanks Trevor

First off I would say the ND filter really did help loads with the level of detail in the sky and there were some exposure tweaks but what's giving it the contrasty detailed look is a Photoshop Luminosity layer with some masking. Simples! It's a great way to give lift to any image and bring out some awesome details.
