Thank you for the new contest. My entry below. This was a tough one. Such a beautiful creature. I felt the scene only needed some warming up and color adjustments.

Wow. Thank you, all, for posting these amazing edits of one of my favorite Ponies (Wild Horse of Assateague Island, Maryland).

It is very difficult to say that I am able to choose a favorite among those posted thus far.

I have a small website about these famous horses. I might like to feature a few of the edits/entries in a post or two (with links back to YOUR work, of course.) I'll be leaving on a two week vacation at the end of this week - so it will have to wait a while. I also have a Facebook Page where some of these may be shared. https://www.facebook.com/AssateaguePony/

Good luck with the edits and the contest. A big Thank You to Abbie for creating these Edit Challenges.

This one is a challenge for sure for me, I decided to go with black and white, cropped to a square and slight graphic effects to highlight the texture of the mane:

It was bound to happen sooner or later, science can bring some really weird results sometimes, or a real night-mare as it were.

But police always wanting the cutting edge were the first to adopt them. Mounted police, part horse, part man. A strange combo, but if you think about it, it really isn't. They have all the dexterity of a human, if you don't need hands, but it can run like a horse. It can kick really well, and it doesn't need cleaning up after. And best of all, it eats oats. real easy to work with.

Portrait of a Pinto Horse by Floyd Snyder

An original photograph of a portrait pinto horse that I digitally enhanced.

Pintos are also called "paints" because they are multicolored.

Depending on how old you are or how much follow old western TV shows, the most famous pinto horse of all time was ridden by Tonto, the Lone Range's trusty sidekick.

Tonto called his famous horse Scout. And of course, Silver was the name of the famous white stallion ridden by The Lone Ranger.

Hi-ho Silver! Away!!

Enjoy! Floyd Snyder, FASGallery.com

This image was edited for the 10th Abbie Shore (FAA admin) edit challenge (The first of 2010). Abbie supplied the original image of just the horse and background grass, fence, and foliage. In this version I added the little girl with the contestant number on her back to the image. She is wearing red chaps and a white helmet. I captured the girl at a 4H contest back in 2007 near Centreville, Maryland.

Amazing work with one of my favorite ponies. So many different approaches - and they are all wonderful. Simply amazing, I am in awe.

BTW - this pony's name is Susi Sole. She is a pinto mare born on May 26, 2014 and is one of 80 +/- wild horses living on Assateague Island in Maryland. The island is an Atlantic Ocean coastal barrier island where the wild horses are allowed to live free and unencumbered by (a lot of) human intervention.

My 2nd version for Abbie Shore's edit challenge. I added a more colorful sky and painting effects.

For those of us living in Maryland, this may be of special interest...

On an island in Maryland, U.S.A. there is a place for wild things such as the Assateague horses. In this painting two of these horses have found a meadow by an isolated path. A little girl in long blond braids and a summer dress walks toward the horses with some wild grass in her hand. Susi Sole is the horse on the ground resting along with her foal on the path. The little girl knows she is not to try and feed the horses, but what can a little grass hurt if she tosses it on the ground as she walks by?

I've got to agree with Abbie - I'm loving these edits. There is such an abundance of creative imagination - I am in awe..

I am leaving on Friday for a two week vacation (cruise from Baltimore to the Southern Caribbean) and, unfortunately, won't know the results of the contest until we get back. I would love to do an article for my Assateague Pony website about this contest and the creativity here. I may ask some of you for small digital prints to be used as examples (with appropriate credit and links, of course). I may also share some of these works (for those of you that leave them for sale in you FAA galleries) to Social Media. I have a couple of related FB "pages" (20,000+ fans) and two related Twitter pages.

Here is the website where I would like to do an article or two: My Assateague Wild Horses Photography Blog.

The game of chess is a game of patience and strategy. The horse represents the knight of which there are two for each player. This knight was modeled after Susi Sole an Assateague horse residing in Maryland, U.S.A.. She is a brown and white pinto living among other feral horses on an isolated island captured in a photograph by Bill Swartwout. I made her into a chess piece so that she could be handled by humans and remembered as a horse that is in reality untouched by the contemporary world.

 

Oooooo, I love the knight, Debra.

I really like all of the above created images but this one struck me because I learned to play chess from my Dad about 60 years ago. Also, in a "former life" as a middle school teacher I was adviser to the Chess Club.
