Technical data: Photo taken with hand held Nikon SLR film camera & Nikkor 180mm f2.8 lens using existing daylight. Approximate exposure 1/1000 second at f8 - Kodak Tri-X rated normally at EI 400, processed normally. No lens filters were used.

Film was scanned using a Nikon Coolscan series film scanner. Photo file routinely optimized using Photoshop; levels and curves, sharpening, cropping and dust spot removal using clone tool. I use a Mac for all photo processing.

Comments: For several days I had been photographing at a New England riding school and still needed that one image that would summarize everything all by itself. This field, with the church steeple and village homes in the background, was perfect but I was unable to contact the out-of-town owner of the property for permission. On my last day I received a phone call from the owner's son who assured me it was okay with his Dad if I used the hayfield.

This was an easy shot. I had the girls ride into the scene from an angle to create a string of horses in front of the village. I had already chosen my picture spot beforehand so there were no surprises with composition. A slight overexposure kept some detail in the horses.
