    Paddock buddies... crop suggestions?

    Hey all...

    I took this Sunday. I cropped down from the original, but am wondering if I should do a tighter crop and just focus on their heads.

    Thanks all...

    On a sidenote to anyone who read my post on the viewfinder board... the horse on the right is the one who got loose and was galloping around the cornfield. He's around 24 years old-- I don't think he knows it.

    This shot has potential, but it might be hard to get a perfect crop. There's a nice long feel to the head and neck areas, but I almost want to see more of the shot, not less... Maybe more of the horses' bodies, so the shape of the photo would tend to curve down as the viewer's eyes move right?

    Here's my crop

    My crop was almost identical to GB's but I won't post it. It works better in a vertical stance, and focusing on the horses body.

    Nice shot,
