Every once in a while you make an image that you're satisfied with - well this is one of those.

Used darken/lighten center filter - nik efex - twice. The light was super harsh.

Then I used some Fractalius and faded it - I've actually been doing that to a lot of my images and it adds tons of dimension - in my view, of course.

It's overlayed with the golden filter I got off of Flickr - it's in the texture library. I used multiply mode.

Oh, baby, I'm a dark racehorse. Kind of like Norman Rockwell of the old west. Stylized to beauty.

I really like how the processing focuses you on his eye area and face. A handsome boy he is.

The detail around the eye area and the lack of detail in other areas really sets the mood...this is great.

the lighting is beautiful .. the horse cropped like that is perfect . .. love the way he stands out from his background not only with your processing but also his 'look' .. to me his look is far away .. running free .. :)

I feel as though I could reach out and touch this and it would feel like velvet.

I have to agree - this is really nice. Something about the dark horse and the lighter background. I like the crop too. It's lovely.

The horses head becomes a shape...then all fades to abstractness if we let it...well done.
