Very nice interesting silhouette shot with fantastic colors. Back to bump you up to 9.

I personally wish the horse's shilouette was maybe at a slighly different angle, and thus more defined and clear. On the other hand, I do appreciate your creativity here, and that this is not the typical profile silhouette. But, although I immediately reckognized the figures as a horse and a person, I wish I could see a more defined shape of the horse. Right now he's a mass of black shapes and hair. Perhaps if the horse's head had been turned towards the person... but yes, I know, you can't just ask the horse, "Will you please tilt your head this way... no, more. Up a little, now with more of an angle... yes, just like that..." ;D

Just a thought. overall I really like this image a lot, and the colors are lovely! :)

Classic and gorgeous. You've conveyed friendship here very well.

Love the wind blowing everything as they head into the sunset together. More poignant this way, side by side.

This is a really beautiful sunset / silhouette photo. I love the motion in the tail and details of the rider's outfit. Bumping from 8 to 9 on second look.

wonderful silhouette.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

First. the symmetry between the silhouetted rider and horse is beautiful. Unforetunately, the sky in the background is over the top and does not work for me, espicially the "burning" appearance around the horses tail. A B&W conversion may have had a stronger impact. Good Luck. 5.

Another catchy title here has made me wonder about the subject's in the picture the Horse is easily recognized yet the human appears to be a woman to me, begging which one is the mans best friend?

L-O-V-E this! If the guy also had long, flowing hair blowing in the wind, I'd give you a 12!

Awesome!! Love the way the horse is straight-on so it doesn't scream "horse" at first - a neat way of looking at things.

Lovely silhouettes with enough detail to catch a glimpse of the mood. I love the graduand of colors across the sky. Very nice.

Lovely clean image and colours. Certainly commercial in aspect. If only there was a little profile on the horse's head.
