This is a composite of two images. I shot the background at the Verde River in Scottsdale, AZ and the horse and rider is Stefanie Maas of Cave Creek, AZ on her gorgeous new mount, Rohan. He is a Friesian gelding and so beautiful and gentle. I added a couple of texture layers and lots of hours extracting and editing :)

So beautiful, Jean, it looks like a well done painting. The lighting is amazing, as is your sharpness and capture of details. All the photoshop work is superb. I can see the reason you won. This is an amazing piece of art.
