Nice idea, and nice soft feeling to match. Love the ethereal feel of the horse, brush, and trees. Hope it does well.

Little too much soft focus. I think you could have backed it up a bit and still conveyed the soft look.

Great moody shot.

But there IS such a thing as soft focus, as you've adeptly illustrated here with this fine photo. :D Nice shot overall. Does seem a bit too yellow to me. Good luck.

Routerguy? Just a hunch from past challenges. Photo is a nice job regardless...maybe a little too bright on the top of the horses back...I like it...9

Beautiful horse, lovely colors. Oh, how I wish that foreleg was all in the picture. Nevertheless, it's a fine image.
