Very nice shot. Got a 9 from me in voting. Very strong contrasts and great tonal range. Composition is very well done and the pose is perfect. Really sets up a nice contrast between two front subjects and the emphasis is well placed. Nice shot! Very well done and in within the theme!

Very good shot Sandy and very apt for this challenge. I esp like the b&w tones and the background. Excellent work!

shooting a black horse in B&W is not easy, well done having the light hay being chewed, really helps break up the darkness. Well done ... AGAIN!

This looks great in B&W the comp and the shadows work well, although the horse's nose seem a little too dark.

Perfect interpretation for the Environmental Portrait challenge. Nice composition using the horse that ties the cowboy and environment together. One of my favorites in the challenge.

backlighting doesn't help much, but good environmental portrait attempt. 6

Fill in flash may have helped get more detail in the foreground
