7/7 Wojtek! This is stunning! This one is the best horse photo I've seen. I love it - everything - the horse his dynamics, the dust, colors, the glow on his skin, the DOF. Simply superb. I could not resist to rate it :)

Philip Doyle
Wow, amazing light, dynamic pose, and mottled background.

Chee Hong Peow ( CHiPs )
Very very good.

Allen Yang
Flawless! This is a photo from the god! 7+++/7+++! At the first sight, I thought this was a painting by a traditional-style Chinese artist -- Beihong Xu. Truly remarkable.

Mark P.
I'm a horse guy. I ride often, and break them in my spare time. My problem is that (as a camera junkie) I can't take seem to take shots like this. This is a beautiful shot. Simply incredible. Please post more!!!

Jim Kerr
This is so good, at first I thought it a painting by one of the masters, perhaps the best photograph of a horse in motion I've ever seen.....Congradulations.....Jim

Greg S
This is beyond great... and you did it with a Fuji S2! (my cam :) Nice work! -Greg-

Andy Wilkes
Once again - Possibly the best image of a horse in graceful motion, in any medium. Yes it looks like a painting by a master.

Greg Scott
Incredible This is also the best horse image, painting, sculpture, or photograph, that I can recall having seen, except perhaps a pegasus might be as good, maybe. This is an amazing photograph, and powerful beyond my ability to comment meaningfully.

Sharon Jackson

Nicholas Bryant
7/7 speechless ;)

Carlos Ramirez
7/7 My favorite. Great shot of a bay Arabian.

nesa asgari

Aimar Fraga

Brendon Cullinan
In a world so full of cynicism and pain, it is a relief and a rest to cast my eyes upon this artistry. What beauty!

marcin lewandowski
niesamowite Wojtek. Niesamowite zdjecia. spojzalem dzieki nim calkiem inaczej na mozliwosc sfotografowania konia, a w Irlandii gdzie mieszkam jest ich dosc sporo :) brak mi slow na "krytyke" tych zdjec ale chyba mozna nimi zamknac usta wszystkim, ktorzy nie chca zaliczyc fotografii do sztuki. pozdrawiam serdecznie Marcin

D. L. Stupski
No critique necessary. You don't need one on this beauty.

Rene Chow
EXCELLENT excellent ART!

Zoran Rosomanov
Simply breathtaking! Excellent everything!

James Heal
Superlatives are so often dished out but this deserves them fully! The dynamism and artistic quality of this shot is truly remarkable!

Kevin Ng
Too good to be real. I thought it was a painting and then it transformed in front of my eyes. Incredible! And what else can I say.

AmAAZzIINnGGGGggG!!!!!! 8/7

Heinz Homatsch
simply great! My first 7/7

Erin Butler
motion and light Your photos, beyond being technically outstanding, are gorgeous to me because they capture the essential beauty of the horse in motion. Many people take pictures of horses, but you have the arch of the neck, the fineness of nostrils and eye, the power of the hindquarters, so beautifully rendered, it is stunning. I wish I could see full-size prints.

Dariusz Ceglarek
Ronceval It is nice to meet you and your photos here. I'm very proud because you do the best job to show that polish school of photography isn't bad. Your horses looks like on Kossak paintings. [in polish:] Zycze Ci samych sukcesow.

Kevin A
Absolutely flawless spectacular exposure!

Maria Rita Valenza
Ciao Wojtek, sono senza parole, una foto davvero stupenda!

Ken Simm
Epona I can't follow what everyone else has said other than sheer motion poetry. Its not often you have to search for prose that comes anywhere near the perfection of such a work. I speak as a rider, a photographer and a painter. Ken.

Santosh Devdas
Excellent. Your horse images are unique.

Kaczyńska Anna
Bardzo piekne zdjecie pelne dynamiki. Gratuluje tak wspenialego tematu i przepieknego zdjecia.

Jacqueline Anderson
just amazing! such power and grace....

Richard Wells
Never have i seen so much positive comment and so well deserved

Michael K
Is this a photo or a painting? You should probably post this on a fine-art website. I can't see any photographic qualities in this.

beautiful comments such as "beautiful" is not enough fom me...This looks absolutely painterly...What I want to know is the secret behind the image...Please discuss them if possible...excellent!

Ela Jakiela
To jest najpiekniejsze zdjecie konia jakie kiedykolwiek widzialam, wspaniale, poprostu zadziwiajace.

Marga dD
Masterpiece! Superb! There are no superlatives enough to express the feeling one gets with this photo.

T. Polak
I know it's probably all been said before, but your work is true artistry.

Mahsa Askari
Masterpiece Absolutely great shot! Everything is perfect: pose, head tilt, illumination, framing and background. The vividity of motion is incredible. Tnx !

Kevin Smith
The Elements POWERFUL. And astonishing photography. I hope that you were not trampled! On of the great horse images I have ever seen in my life. Composition and lighting is unreal. The horse out of another dimension. Kind of like what you would envision with Rod Serling's ?Twilight Zone? This is my first time to post here on this forum. Is this photo available to purchase? I have a friend that is close to eighty years old and has a horse farm in Nova Scotia for breeding race horses. I just know that he would just stare at this wonderful photo of yours for years to come. Unbelievable talent on your part. Thank you! -Kevin Smith

Zaw Latt Oh! I thought it is a Painting! A breath taking shot... please post more and thank you very much for sharing.

Nadeem Khawar
What a shot. Excellent.

Ali Kuyumcuoglu
Excellent Just like a painting. Wonderful..

Ram Chatty
This is awesome. Initially, I thought this was a painting. Fantastic !!

Sergio Moreira
excellent... ...I agree with all comments, however in manipulation department [to make background vanish...] the arabian's back legs seem to be thinner than it might if the artist (photographer) had lost sense of proportion during PS post-production so far. Arabian horses are prophet Mohamed's best creation, and they are perfect, would its back legs be so slim? Anyway, the prime shot's absolutely perfect! Sergio Moreira

I can feel the tremor from his strong steps. WONDERFUL, I wish I could make this Big picture and put on my wall. absolute 7/7

Danop Dharmaraksa
HOLY HORSE! HOLY HORSE! This is stunning! Truly beautiful, very painterly, very powerful!

Oh my. . . Just spent the last ten minutes reading through the comments on this image and they've left me nothing to say except. . . well. . . nope it's all been said, but well done! This image hits you right between the eyes, just after it hits your heart. It's not often I have an emotional response to an image, but this one really got me. Well I'm off to see the rest of your portfolio. Thank you so much for sharing. Kind regards Nedine

For Sale? This should be a a motivational or inspirational style print/photo. I am sure this could be marketed. I love it.

Maija Athena

Your work is incredible... a new goal to "shoot" for in 2010!

Eric Wéry
Perfect result

Amazing image, all i think has been already mentioned, but the tones are perfectly chosen, it might have not worked so well with other shades. Congratulations on your masterpiece.

Wojtek Kwiatkowski
:) Thanks for your time.
