First upload for some time - this has been cropped (as if you never guessed!!).

Something that is hopefully a little different and unusual for me at least.

Thank you so much for looking - any comments would be most welcome as always.

Or the horse mountain? The mane seems to be morphing into a rocky outcrop. There's a curious triangle of interest - fly, ear, eye. Intriguing image.

Compositionally, this breaks the rules, but it works, and the eye captures the attention straight away. Featured e2 photo at the moment.

Nice idea and i like the close crop of the horse, so click for that. However i think the cutting and pasting of the horse into the sky could have benefited form a bit more work

Thanks all for your comments very much appreciated.

Dave I completely agree - I tried to merge two images and of course the horse mane betrayed what I had done so I had to try a feather it in not a brilliant effort - I guess I was just too impatient.

I like it; reminds me of a story:

This cop stopped a speeding motorist; as he was writing out the ticket at the window of the guy's car, he was brushing at some flies around his head. The motorist said; "Circle flies are bad today, eh?" The cop looked at him and went back to writing the ticket, and brushing away the flies. Motorist; "Man, those Circle flies are bad today, aren't they officer?" Cop; "What are you talking about? Circle flies, what are circle flies?" Motorist; "Well, you've often seen those flies that circle around a horse's ass....?"

hi this image works really well with what you have done the crop looks great, the painterly effect looks great too and the position of the horse to the sky works really well.
An overall great shot well done my man.
