  4. These are beautiful, and bring back memories of my grandparents small farm. I remember when they brought in the shieves with horse and wagon. I loved riding on the wagon.
    Nice work Horst. Definitely wall hangers.

  8. Wonderful work Horst, are these the same horses you posted a while back? They're amazing and definitely would make fantastic wall hangings, done up on canvas I'm thinking.

    Very nice header and a very Happy Valentine's Day to you as well! Cheers.

  11. These photos were taken at The Ukrainian Cultural Village Museum. There are very few places that use Horses for harvest time these days. The people that take part are Horse lovers, they keep the horse because they love them and love to work them on important occasions. The horses that are used at the museum are from private farmers, that donate their time for these occasions.

  12. Wow! These are exceptional pieces of artwork! They really captured the feel of harvest time. I believe I can even hear the clip clop of horse hooves. Exceptional! You are so very talented!

    Love the beautiful Valentine's Day header! Wishing you a Valentine's Day filled with warmth and joy!

    These are very special and unique art work. I love these photographs very, very much. I would love to express how I feel about this art but everything I will say would be so small.

    Fantastic art work!!!!

    1. Hey Carole, I was just on their web site and they have added many more old buildings to the Ukrainian cultural Heritage Museum. I will have to go again this year to see what else I can photograph.

  16. Beautiful beautiful shots, very restful (an odd reaction considering they depict work). Well done!

  17. Great pictures. As if it were old times. I would like to learn this technique. Probably can be processed only in Photoshop, right? Sincerely, Peter.

    Verbal verification in the comments, that much harder, with two words that are not distinguished.
    Please, you can remove it? Thank you!

    1. Sorry Magda, I didn't realize that I had word verification on, I went and turned it off. It's funny that they don't tell anyone(Google)that the settings have changed automatically.

  22. Horst, these are so wonderful! Would you mind sharing what attachment you used for these? It's really nice, but of course, you had those stunning shots to start with.

    1. I'll give you a hint, Search for a painting affect on Google.

  23. You don't see scenes like this very often these days - Very nice.
    I'll take any tips you have to offer about using filters :)
    Looks like I need to search for a painting effect on google too...

    1. Hi Tammy, if you need to know anything about filters just ask. I used to use lots of different filters when I did a lot of B&W. Got all kinds of great results. Have fun finding painting effects. I'm sure you'll find some great effects.
