I also love this one of Evening Attire and Tacticianor

Not sure what makes a photo a favorite, but if it means one I'll never forget it has to be Chris Antley and Charismatic.

Probably the ones Livingston took of Mayakovsky at Mill Creek in the snow and her photos of Evening Attire. They were beautiful.... not sure where they are (or if they are) online anymore.

St Nicholas Abbey winning the 2011 Breeders' Cup Turf - to me that is the definition of a horse knowing what it means to win

It can be anything from composition, to beauty to stirring emotion. I tend to focus on the latter.

Nice contributions...

The one of Prairie Bayou you posted is hanging above my bed. It is my all time favorite photos of a horse I love.
