Canon 20D w/ 70-200mm f/4 non-IS

Aperture priority, f/5.6 1/800 ISO 200 focal length: 131mm

This is a Peruvian Paso mare and the way the sun hit her amber eye and flaxen mane caught my attention. Captured in RAW and processed CS3. Despite the relatively shallow DOF, I thought the metal pipe fencing in the background was too distracting, so I used layers to completely blacken the background. The image has not been cropped. Thoughts?
