majestic. you couldn't have asked for better background tones, dark in the back and light in front.

This is bery pretty. I would have liked to see the horse a little sharper.

I feel as though for this shot something should be in focus. The eye, the muzzle. The blur doesn't look deliberate and doesn't enhance the photo.

Not bad... though I guess it would have been better it the horse had been a little more in focus.

Nice one though.

Nice motion in the background. I can't tell if you softened the horse in post processing -- I've found that my preference in nearly all of these blur shots has been for a sharp subject. I like the look on the horse's face, and the main in the air. Overall, I really like the shot. I would have given an extra point for a sharper subject.

I love this picture, especially the contrast between the horse and the background, I also think you chose the perfect horse for this picture. Keep up the good work!

horses normally just freak me out, but this is gorgeous. i only wish that the face could be just a smidgeon sharper; especially round the eyes and ears. but the flowing mane, background, the b&w tones, composition (i like how you've not bothered with its body or legs) all add up to make this a really great shot; bit sharper and it would be worthy of any poster store. 7.

This looked very nice in the thumbnail, but in large form the horse isn't sharp.

Would have loved to see him in a bit better focus.

Great composition and tones. The motion blur in the background and mane are awesome, but I think that the face of the horse(at the very least the eyes) should be sharper.

This is nice. I really like the tones with the white/grey horse and the matching background. Hope this does well for you. Good luck.
