So, it's not a well known user. But it is an actual user registered on the site. I was looking through the names and saw 'StoneHorse' and thought of this statue, outside of PF Changs at Flatirons Mall. So I packed up the camera and off I went.

PSPX edits:

Rotate, Clarify (20), Resize, Brightness/Contrast (0/15), Sharpen, Cloned out some sensor dust, markings on horse and a stray wire behind the horse (lower left), added border and save for web.

This is by far the best of your challenge entries! Great shadow definition and sky. The contrasts of colors is exceptional.

This is one hell of a shot; really surreal with the shadows and texturally detailed horse against a supercontrasted sky. Magnificent.

I didn't get a chance to comment during the voting, but I wanted to drop back by and say that I love the texture on the statue. This is a great, sharp shot, and I'm glad you shared it with us.

Very fitting for the user name you chose. I like the contrast of the sculpture to the sky. Although parts of the sky do look a bit overprocessed or dark, but not too bad. Overall, a nice image.

Certainly a good specimen with a dynamic sky. Bumping up.

whoa - perfect image for the name and you have made the horse look so very stoney by the colors, or lack of colors. great contrast between the light, colorful, fluffy, high sky and the grey gritty down on earth horse, Your choice of angle is just wonderful. 10

Strong impact with this great image, well done.............love the composition.

Love the perspective taken for this shot. Nice crisp picture. Is it two composed together? Almost looks like the horse was superimposed over the sky background.

Very nice the way the dullness of the horse is set against the vibrant sky

Hmm, I thought I saw an ironhorse, but don't remember a stonehorse. Thats cool, cause I still love this shot either way. Nice stuff going on with the sky too. Nice capture.

I like this very much. The complementary brown/blue combination works really well, along with the hardness of the stone and the fluffy clouds. I like your perspective with him looming over you. Nicely done. 8

Excellent deep DOF, the sky background really makes it jump out.
