One image... one thousand words...
Before: busy background, dark tones obscure outline, wrong hat
Make sure those thousand words say good things!
A GOOD image works,
A GREAT image works hardest for you!
After: clean simple lightened background and horse "pops" off page, correct hat -- no changes to horse but MUCH more impact!
Color or dramatic black & white, both draw and hold viewer interest better with digital retouching
