Jane and Belle Working Hard

 

When you place a white horse in the sun and a black horse in the shade, you are asking for trouble. The camera's dynamic range can't handle the whites and blacks at the same time. Something has got to give and in my case, it was the whites. Poor Jane has her white coat blown out in the strong sun light.
