Vision: Fits with the title and with the description as well. The energy is there and does describe a wing mare as Rainbow appears to be Twilight's wing mare due to Twilight increased speed. Well done.

Originality: Ponies aren't too original the energy and the scene are. The style and energy the artist has is original to them and this type of scene is original to me as I haven't really seen many if any images depicting Princess Twilight beating Rainbow Dash at a race. Well done.

Technique: The lighting is excellent making the water very beautiful and reflective. The reflecting distorted of Twilight also very well done and I love the water spray flying up behind the fourth Princess as her wings come down to brush along the surface of the water as she flies possibly picking up more speed. The sky is a lovely light blue with soft white wisps of cloud so they are there but not too solid to be any sort of detraction from the two ponies.

I love the air forming a barrier around in front of Twilight showing us just how quickly she is going the same force we've seen form in front of Rainbow and can see here also forming in front of Rainbow as she tries to speed up and catch up if not pass Twilight. The detail on both their wings is excellent. I love the detailing on the feathers they are simply gorgeous and nicely shaded as well showing the flapping motion of Twilight to stay in the air.

Her mane and tail shooting back like a streak is very well done matching what has been seen to happen with Rainbow and others when they go fast enough and we get to also see this same effect on Rainbow very nice. The expression of shock on Rainbows face well done to show her shock that she is losing to Twilight the pony who in Season 1 had called an egghead before losing to her in the Galloping of the Leaves. Shows more that even eggheads can be fast and great. I also like the the blur on her cutie mark to also demonstrate her speed increasing.

The shading on Twilight's body and Rainbow's body are well done as well. I also like the added length to Twilight's horn showing that since her Alicorn ascension that with the bit of added height her added length to her horn as well.

One thing I might suggest with her wings on Twilight or at least on the side we see maybe add a little bit of an after images between to better demonstrate the flapping perhaps if it wouldn't take away from the image? I could tell she was flapping but some might not so either motion lines or light after image or two indicating the flapping a little more clear. But that is only if it wouldn't detract from the over all amazing artwork.

Impact: Very beautiful to look at as though it has not much in the background it has enough with the scenery to be beautiful, in my eyes anyway, and doesn't take away from our two focal points nor does it take away from the energy and motion demonstrated in the picture. Wonder where they are racing to or if they are on a set course and will return to the start.

Overall: Simply gorgeous picture. The water is beautifully done and has a cool realness feel to it for me and Rainbow and Twilight are both very well done. I enjoy this as it has wonderful energy and is a nice soothing blues. Only thought is with the side we can see Twilight's wings clearly maybe adding one or two light afterimages or faded images of her wings to give the indication of flapping to make it more clear she is flapping and doesn't just have four wings but that is only if it wouldn't take away from the fluid motion and fast energy of the beautiful image. Wonderful work.

ok i love this piece, but i do not understand why you have made two wings on twily. the horn is too long, the cutie mark looks like it is fading away Twilys hooves look like purple dolphin fins, which is the second thing that i do not like about this picture. Twily has no eyelashes, and a girl without eyelashes is just retarted. Rainbow Dash kinda looks like a hobo. i hope you do not mind. but the thing i love is the way you made the water, its like infinity! other than that stuff, its beautiful, man, awesome!!totally awesome!! i love it!!!

Nitpick season:
Though I like the action of it the drawing out of Twily makes her look somewhat flattened. Rainbow's hair looks like a crew cut probably because it's too short (or at least too short in comparison to Twily's.
I think Twily's arms could be a little less elliptical. chopping off a section for the hooves would probably solve some of the adore-mentioned problems
In a similar thread the horn looks nice and works well with the theme, but it's really long.
The four wing thing is a bit odd, though I see why you did it. The joint is a bit odd the muscles for the wings would work at odds.
The water is a good effect.

All in all the problems I found are mostly due to the fact that you want to make Twily look fast without a blur effect. If any change would reduce that effect it wouldn't be worth it.

1. I did say nitpick season. 

2 True that horses don't have arms, I anthropomorphized MLP to call their holding legs arms.

3 news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images…
4 winged dinosaur.

4 So all in all, the last point I made was pretty much any correction which would detract from the whole stands. 

5 If you ask for critique expect people to disagree with horn length.  If you want to kvetch about their critique, don't ask.

Horses does not have arms
Stop complaining about horn's lenght. I'm not going to change it (It's not the first time somebody say something like this about horns on my pics)
4 wings is the whole point of this picture. If you think that you know better how the joint is supposet to look, then provide me with some references of how 4 wings supposed to look on creatures with 4 limbs.

Winged dinosaurs did not have limbs beside wings. Beside in this picture wings are supposed to be under each other because it's kind of a crossover. Look up "X-wing"
If you write a critique expect people to answer to it. If you looked through my art and read some critiques on my art you would have understood that horns are something I'm not going to change, just like pointy legs and giant manes and tails.

X-wing Twilight is awesome. Rainbow Dash just got demoted to 2nd place behind her.

There's something that's been bugging me that I just have to know. Would Twilight be considered a Twi-fighter?
