It's chocolaty and velvety smooth, it's almost edible.

Somehow along the way I have missed this one. Wow. What a tempest! Thanks, Mae, for pointing it out.

Re-visiting this, what a classic, I remember when I first saw it, i couldn't stop staring at it, I think thats what distinguishes a photo from a real photo.

This grabs me. Wonderful. The mood you created with this image fits the title perfectly.
Ps. Came back for a 2nd look as the words and the song "Horse Latitudes" by The Doors just came to mind. You are probably familiar with The Doors and the song. If not Google "Horse Latitudes"

Although this image is presented as dark and broody...I find a quirk of humor in the very idea of this image. But, then again, I have an odd sense of humor. Straight into my FAVS!

I'm amazed you can tell the horse is a stallion from this angle.

Congrats on the high placement. I wasn't sure how this would do, but I'm pleased to see it was widely appreciated.

I like the Sepia? colouring. And of course the brooding quality, noticeable in most of your work.

This one jumped out as being mysterious and interesting.

Whoa, that's fabulous! A top-20 posthumous blue to boot. Instant fave for me. Horse-as-landscape, who'da thunk it?

Probably my challenge favorite. I like the darkness, though I wonder if it could be a little brighter without sacrificing mood. Love the composition.

i like the whole idea behind this shot. i don't know if it fits this challenge the best, but i like it. i think it would be better if it was over all brighter. i guess higher contrast... good luck! :)

A wonderful landscape. But only for a moment.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is so beautiful. It is almost otherworldly. It is a song, a poem and a picture all in one. A very remarkable and powerful elegy. My favorite. 10

Not that I understand the horse back, but the gloomy background make it for me.

I thought this was some hills for a few moments, and then I noticed the mane. Well done.
