An old photo I took some time last year, that I've dug out to do some editing with! It was quite foggy on the day, and so i've exaggerated this by using a linear gradient in black at the bottom which i think gives it an almost 'ghostly' feel to the horse. will be adding a few versions to this too! enjoy!

A really lovely shot, and very imaginative using the grad from bottom to top.

I think v1 is the most successful and the treatment has worked very well as a mono. I find the noise/grain in the colour ones a little too distracting, but v4 is very good too. You could possibly give the noise/grain a touch of Gaussian Blur to soften the effect. Not too much though as you still need to see the speckling. Imo, the white gradient is a little heavy-handed and has obliterated any detail in the grass. If you duplicate the horse layer and use the Screen blending mode with a gradient on the mask, this may look better. Use the opacity slider to reduce the effect if it looks too bright.

Alan.

Personally, I like version 1 the best; it looks very nice in B&W and the mood in V1 is wonderful.
