Here you go, Carol. A wild horse dancing in a display to challenge a smaller white stallion. It didn't work. Smaller one won. Original taken with Nikon D700, 80-200f8, other details not recorded. Transformed in a Samsung Galaxy s8 with an app called MIX and a filter called "Brush Strokes".
All C&C welcome. Please click on image. Thanks.

There you go!  

This is a beauty, Joe.  You've got the dancing feet, lowered head and flying mane which all add to the action, and then the dust clouds confirm what's going on.  Lovely colours and nice texture without being too harsh on the original image.  I really like this a lot and certainly my favourite so far. 

Great stuff!!  :D 

Carol.

I really liked your previous version, Joe, but this is even better. I continue to love the mane, but the action and dust in this version takes it up a notch. Great work.

Yup, this has it all, Joe! Great progression of work - improvements all the time up to this very fine rendition. The textures and colors work beautifully, and the dust is beautifully soft. I like the horse's face in this one too-and the mane and tail and and ...everything!
