Photo critique Here is where you can display your images and seek the comment, advice and, maybe, constructive critique of your work. Only post your images here if you are happy for frank feedback. If in doubt, use the beginners board instead. Only post your comments here if you feel you can make a constructive and polite contribution in response to what is, for some, a leap of faith in exposing their work to your critical comment.

Pony update- Accidently sold pics

Today I showed the owner of the pony in my Previous post "Pony" four 10x8 prints of her grey pony as she requested, now me being a top draw salesman told her she could keep the prints as she was over the moon with them.
Then came the question "how much do we owe you?"
Owe me!........ Yikes I wasn't doing it for money, the best buzz was her and her partners clear joy at the results and the Ego building remark that they had paid for photos at a show and these were much better
In the end I was forced to settle for a contribution to my red wine fund and how nice it tastes to.
Much to my embarresment the lady then went off to show other owners at the stables her piccies, which was closely followed by the comments " oh my horse is always around if your wanting to take more photos" so i now have about 15 more to do
The pics of Truffles in Down The stables thread in Eye for the camera had just about the same result

Re: Pony update- Accidently sold pics

Funny though, but I never intended to sell any but take for my own pleasure, its nice that people really appreciate ones efforts..........now that E620 or dare I say E30 is looking like a real possibility.
The doggie pics will end up in that old cornish thing called a barter i think as they will pay for a weeks Livery
