Oooo, with how their eyes and noses are, and with little bits of light that matches them in the rest of the picture, and the overall brownish color of the piece, it makes me think of a forest fire and the fire's glow reflecting in their eyes and the moisture of their nostrils as they throw them open to breath through the exertion of fleaing the fire and the weight of the smoke!
this gives the effect of a movie still. I love how you've avoided the cliches of reds golds etc and gone for a much more muted autumnal scheme, it's not brown and boring at all and the blue eyes and random sparkles give it a real lift. (course we don't really get red and gold autumns anyway do we... more like brown and soggy ones with slippy wet leaves. hah.)
I think so too. Some people wish everyone to understand their work exactly the way they understand it themselves but I think it's always more interesting when people see several different things in your work, even something you didn't mean with it at all.
what's cool about this is you look at it and you actually get some of the cold, autumn-y smells in your nostrils. i really miss autumn. some of the best smells are from there. sorry; synesthesia's getting to me again. but this really truely looks like it could be an autumn day, sometime in october a hundred years ago. very pretty. ^^
I'd have to say that although this picture'd look great in a movie or something, for a frozen image, it looks as if it's lacking a definite point the eyes can focus on.
The blue in the horses is a great touch, but I'd accentuate that just a tad more. (And make the foremost horse fit in with the background a bit more. Perhaps define that area a little more.)
