A colour photo, converted to mono, cropped, some brushwood removed.
Not quite digitally manipulated, I hope.
Saw it at a horse trials, took it at the same place one year later. Makes me think of an evening ride, but was actually late afternoon.

Great shot, the black and white works really well. I like the contrast in the action of the horse to the calm of the trees.

The very simple silhouettes make this a strong image. Conjures up to me the image of a rider crossing a large plain in the middle of nowhere, one can make of it what one wants really - nice one!
