' an image that whispers, but it can be heard over many others. the regularity of the windows, the light and dark, the hints of the horse, all combine to make a very powerful image. the composition works very well indeed.

Wow such a low score. This is worthy of 7+, IMO.

The horse and rider are a bit dark and easy to overlook in this shot. Brighten it up a touch, and I think it would score a point higher.

With potential. The underexposure ruins unfortunately a great part of the impact, I understand you wanted a relatively dark horse crossing the light, but the horse is hardly visible on my monitor...
With some more aperture, not much, probably a great image.

Very majestic. The rays of light really give this a great effect. Great job! :o)

I like the subtlety of your photo. The lighting, the composition - all good, and the title definitely fits.

It would be interesting to know if this was setup or not. It looks like it was but only because it's so perfect. Either way it doesn't matter. I love how the windows are such a strong element in this photograph. It allows the subject to reveal itself as quitely as a whisper but as an entry it roars. Easily the best in the challenge and my YankO Blue. Good luck.
