excellently presented, Alan.. has a horsey feel to it.. it is just so horsey horsey.. these movement-blur images are not failing.. every time it is deeper emotion than what the actual sight may provide.. this time again, as though you have captured the soul of a forlorn horse..

Looking like he has his winter shaggy coat on. Well done Alan.

Oh I do love this Alan. Absolutely superb work. Hauntingly atmospheric and the ICM actually brings the horse to life. Well done.

Thanks, Pranav... that's precisely how I feel about the technique.

Nice effect, kind of abstract.

Impressive work Alan, all about the feeling rather than pictorial detail, love the way the mane flows downwards and the black background works so well.

Can't find the words. The emoticons are nowhere near expressing the effect of this image. So, it will have to be my humble little user award, sent with the greatest respect, Jacqui

Another excellent shot. The composition couldn't be improved.

Well it's definitely not a pot-bellied pig. I was rather looking forward to seeing what ICM would do to that.

With stripes like that Alan, i would say it has transmogrified from a giraffe to a horse!

Another excellent piece.

A feeling of dejection, giving up, done in.

It's definitely a horse! Very interesting technique, not one that I'd be able to master, but you certainly seem to have! Well done!

There is such sadness about this image.
I like your camera blur on landscapes more, personally, so I guess I'm going against the grain.

I have admired some of your humorous comments on other members images,
so I thought I would have a nosey about at your PF.
As someone who likes a bit of ''humour'' too,
I do not possess your photographic expertise however.
A rather fine PF you have.
And that is straight from the horses mouth !!

A masterful crop, Alan. Follows that rule of ignoring the rules to excellent effect.

A very well made image Alan. The strong contrast between the horse and the dark background and the vertical blur gives this a sense of mystery and unease.
