We don't play a lot of polo in Scotland Sandy.If any at all !! I doubt we have anyone in the Country that could stay on a horse.Besides,it seems a lot of hard work.Can you not get the horse to kick the ball,or whatever the ball is called ?
Good work.

{A+} Lovely & artistic DA image rendering of the 'Polo Action,' Sandy. Wonderful tones with a hint of water color elements. Really like this a lot. Great work.

No idea what it could have been like originally Sandy, but you've done a wonderful 'salvage' job it seems, as this is a very attractive action scene you have here!

This is different, Sandy! Not sure that the background works for me, though, the horses seem to be suspended in mid air. A vote for all your hard work! Carol

It's an intriguing idea and you've put a lot of time into it because you clearly care about the image. I can see why, despite the 'missing body parts' it has a dynamic rhythm. But I agree with Carol, there's far too much empty, light space under them. Try cropping and adding some shadows?

Like the effect you've achieved. Getting them to look a little more "grounded" would indeed be better yet, though I think what you have achieved is a real sense of movement. Well done!

A wild and dangerous sport. DOn't know how they do it. Well captured, and I can't see any missing parts so you've done a good job.

A good idea and nicely done Sandy. Adding shadows as suggested by Moira sounds like a good idea too.

Interesting manipulation. As has been remarked, it could use some shadows but it does give me the feeling of them playing polo up a crazy cartoon mountain road. Smile

I'd prefer to see a little more space at the top — you could easily clone in a bit more of the man's mallet and then his head wouldn't be skimming the top of the frame.
