Horse Illustrated 2008 Photo Contest Honorable Mentions- Mary Miller-Jordan Mary Miller-Jordan of Kelly, N.C.
Bob's comments: "This is a great concept, but it would have been more enhanced if you used a telephoto lens instead of a wide-angle lens, and stuck the person [and horse] in the middle."
Horse Illustrated 2008 Photo Contest Honorable Mentions- Barry Henry Barry Henry of Louisiana
Bob's comments: "This is being in the right place at the right time and having a great camera. You can't plan this picture."
Horse Illustrated 2008 Photo Contest Honorable Mentions- Lori Grimes Lori Grimes of St. Cloud, Minn.
Bob's comments: "This is a great picture. I hope you didn't get run over, as I see you used a wide-angle lens. The photo is sharp and has impact."
Horse Illustrated 2008 Photo Contest Honorable Mentions- Beth Wieland Beth Wieland of Plano, Texas
Bob's comments: "I try to get this position myself when I'm taking mare and foal pictures. It takes a lot of patience. Well done."

Horse Illustrated 2008 Photo Contest Honorable Mentions- Rebecca Mogielski Rebecca Mogielski of New Brighton, Pa.

Bob's comments: "This is a lovely picture. It's the type I try to get. If only the sun had been shining."
