A Horse is a Horse, Of Course, Of Course

Admit it. You now have the theme song for Mister Ed stuck in your head, don't you! That happens to me every time I see this horse standing outside his small barn. I also see him lying down outside this barn quite often, which is very strange since I didn't think it was healthy for a horse to lie down. Of course, my knowledge of horses doesn't extend beyond anything you can learn from the aforementioned TV show. In any case, I really liked the setup of this scene today, and the lighting on the barn really accentuated the faded wash on the doors and walls. The original plan was an HDR waterfall scene, but I couldn't pass up this setting.
Post processing stared with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX. I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, regions, contrast, boost black, and protect highlights. A levels adjustment and a selective burn was applied in PSE.
