I like it, but maybe a little too dark.

I think this is one of those shots where your try to bring out the darkness of the horse and retain the light and texture. In this case, I think it works quite well.

I like it, but i think it is abit over-sharpened for me. I like the mood tho

I like the composition, but there is something that is off, but I just can't place it. I am not sure if it is the horse more than anything else. Sharpening? Maybe. I just don't know.

Apparently you guys maybe didn't watch LOTR... trying to make an evil looking horse, ha, ha, ha

OK maybe you want a horse used by the elves... aka the forces of good

I prefer the black fur coating of the horse in the first image. That one has best texture

I like the first image. The high contrast works for me.

If you were going for the effect presented in the Ralph Bakshi version of LOTR then I think you hit it pretty good. I think it's interesting anyway and such a contrast to the 2nd one you posted.

Denis I was thinking exactly that ! Where is the Black Rider ? I remember in the first LOTR the first time we see the Black Rider that was one of the best displays of Evil I have ever seen.
