WEll it has horses so it gets lots of extra points from me. Then its the action that is so awesome. You captured the scene so perfectly with the colors, the sharpness, and the amazing details of the action. I love the determined look in the eyes of the one on the right. This is exceptional work my friend.
Have a blessed day. #10346554
