    If you're going for a silhouette, the first one is too light in the foreground. The b&w is a great image though. An enhancement to this image would be to shoot it around sunset.

    B&W easy. The color adds nothing to the image and B&W forces the viewer to concentrate on texture, light, and composition. I would take less blue out of the grayscale conversion so the sky is more dramatic.

    jimismydaddy,,, <------ tuff name to spell lol... Hey thanks for the comments... not real sure what you mean on the color shot( to Light Foreground ?) but ya like the B+W , so counting that vote lol,,,Thanks again!

    Sw1tchFX.... and thanking U2... I hear what your saying... and on the B+W , I did have a more dramatic popping sky , but wasn't sure if I liked it that way, it just had a hmmmm kind of overdone / unnatural look... but appreciate your take and suggestion on this... Thanks!

    #3 for B&W. And I'd crank the contrast back in as it would go very well with the stark transition from horse to sky.

    he means that there is too much color in the foreground and takes away from the shillouette

    i agree about the color silhouette business and think the second one is the better of the two.

    however i don't think the image "rates" because the sillouette isn't very good to begin with, as far as what i see of the horse, i wish there was a second one, or a person, or something.

    I agree with the other comments and believe the B&W is much better.
