    I really love this art. I say art because in my eyes it stands between drawn artwork and photography. Looking at it in a glance it looks almost drawn, give it a longer look and you see all the colors and the beautiful rendering. Bravo!

    This is a powerful image but personally I think it has been spoiled by over processing. In particular there is a lot of noise probably caused by this. There is also evidence of a sort of double imaging around the horse's body. I am not sure either that full aperture was the one to use in this instance for a number of reasons which as a professional you will realise. Maybe a stop down by two stops would help and it is easily accomplished by a slower shutter speed of 1/250sec.

    As I said at the outset it is a powerful image and one with great potential, I just feel it hasn't been taken to that point yet.

    Thanks so much for the feedback guys,

    @frank: Sorry for the website it's actually being built as we speak. I do have a gallery of my work however; it's only view-able by me right now making sure there are no errors before the website goes live. I have not posted any of my work for sale however that is a goal of mine as soon as I feel my work is at that professional level. I agree with the slower shutter speed and stoppage suggestion. This photo was shot right when I received the Mark III so actually I was experimenting and getting use to my camera so I was testing the settings. I have learned with photography that most of the time I shoot photos, it's usually my testing photo's that capture a photo I really like lol. As far as the cropping goes, I agree and disagree at the same time. I feel if I crop the image above the tree I will lose the body of the horse which I think (I may be wrong) gives a real impression of the angle of the shot. I do see looking at this photo when I did edit the photo I do need to take the body and get rid of the halo I now see surrounding the body. Which I now know how to do successfully with my images. So luckily I have the original PSD. file and I will fix that and re-post this with that fixed and get rid of some of the noise. Love the feedback guys, thank you so much.
