I really like this photo. The empty space is perfect, very well composed. The colors are very warm and the details are sharp. It's a lovely scene and you captured it perfectly. TFS!
I love these animals - like probably most people in my country. Horses are deep in our history and hearts.
Przewalski horses are ancestors of our rase of horses - Polish Little Horse. They lived in our country about 300 years ago, but later they were catched, became domesticated and so the new rase arrise.
I love this shot - two horses and the sea of sand. It's really special.

Intersting to see these unusual (for us) horses. Glad to read that they are being protected. I wonder if these were the type that the Mongol raiders used? You have an excllent image with them placed in what appear to be their natural surroundings, rather than a zoo in the West.

Une belle photo, j'aime beaucoup l'espace vide et de couleurs terre laissé au cheveaux. Celà nous donne l'impression qu'ils sont un grand chemin à parcourir.

Definitelly picture with soul, Radu. Not common photo of animal or plant but much more. Your picture starts one's dreams. Beutifully composed, with desert mood, excellent POV. One of your best!

A wonderful shot.
The composition is perfect, equilibrated, and the desertic ground take the place it should.
We almost couls believe we are in these desolated landscape.
Technical stuff spot on too.

Great composition and fabulous warm colours. Sort of wonder where they are going but the nothingness gives a great effect.

Excellent notes! What a great thing to have captured these horses which so many of us have never seen! I like that you included the terrain as it tells a story of their will to survive in rough conditions. Good natural colour, nicely composed. Well done! Thanks for posting!

Nice picture, I love those warm colors and the space you left around the horses, it shows how hard it must be for them to survive, in this hostile and dry desert.

Hi Radu, I find this a very interesting photo. The Calgary Zoo, in Alberta Canada has a few of these horses. I'm glad to hear that there is a breeding program. These horse are the closest direct decendents of the primitive horse. If you where to ever get close enought to see. If you could pick up their hoof, just above is a 2nd toe, on the back side of the foot. Further up the leg is what they call a chestnut and they believe that this was their 3rd toe. Primitive horses use to have 3 toes. Now just one hoof or toe.

Great photo, excellent use of the space around the subjects so it becomes part and parcel of total image.
Most people think horses and they think "fast", that swift, wild gallop across the land. In point of fact, survival, for wild horses, is less about being fast enough to avoid predation and more about slow, steady movement from place to place to find good grazing and water. Your photo depicts that essence of survival skills perfectly.
