Very appealing Joe. Lots in the image for the eyes to roam over, take in and enjoy.

Well done- looks like a pencil drawing. I really like the variety of textures, and this works especially well in B&W. The original is also impressive! One of your best here, I think.

We can never get enough horses IMO Joe! I love what you've done with this in B/W, the action captured and the treatment done. Beautiful action sketching!

Out of one of my favourite songs by the rolling stones just comes to mind with this. What another beauty Joe, shots and work like this leaves me in awe with what we have on this tiny spec of a planet. The original shot is just amazing to see as is the rework here. Very nicely done.
