WOW i love this design (O:
The name really does suit this piece so well(O: I really love the idea of the horses taking their freedom...

I gave you (4) for vision because it’s clear to me that you really thought this through and got my attention.

Originality got a wonderful (4 and a half) it is not something i have seen done on DA before.

Sadly I gave you a (3) for Technique: the front horse seems to be too blurred and it still looks a bit cut out. I must say you did well with the lighting and the effect it creates is great. Also wonderful use of stock

Impact (5) really stunning idea and would love to see more of your work in the future.

Regards Nicolene Lorette design

1st of all - an idea that knocks off. any idea with a concept is good 'cos when nothing makes sense it's senseless - right? but this one does definetly. especially the idea of "Freedom" hits the point in this way. ok, let's see if this helps a lil bit. i think that all 3 horses look cut out infact of they're shot on DAYLIGHT from the SUN on maybe different hours. so they have different length and intensity of SHADOWS on thir bodies. the caroussels have other LIGHTS and SHADOWS - those of static bulbs - and the BG you've used has 2 LIGHT SOURCES. one from the SUNSET of a typical October/November-EVENING and one from the LANTERN. especially the MIST of those cold eves gives the DAYLIGHT that typical touch of having MISTDROPS ON YOUR EYES. they act like a FILTER. (remember of taking walk on such a day?). this FILTER is missing on your pic.
for now that's all so far. nontheless keep on working. i wanna see you win this contest!
kind regards, Ger.

Thank you for your lovely comment. The technic is perhaps not so good because I'm a beginner in photomanipulation and have many things to learn. (But I don't find the horse blurry, nor cut...) Thank you again.

Sorry for the late answer, I was very busy. But you can help me, even if I can't see what goes wrong in this horse.Could you tell me what you'll do to make it better and, doing these changes, I'll see what you mean and it will help me for my future manipulations. Thank you. :blowkiss:
