Nice creative edit. Maybe one point of critique.IMHO the noise is a bit too much.
The best way to get rid of it, even in a part of the photo (the horse) is to use NIK's Dfine.

#1 han b.: Thanks Han for your feedback. This is not a photo but an oil painting and the noise that you are referring to is the canvas texture.

This is an excellent and brave portrait of a most difficult subject to paint. I want also to take up this hobby.

#3 Geordie(Dean Wilson): Thanks Geordie. It is a very relaxing but yet challenging hobby.

Do you know what between painting and photographing?
On painting the paintbrush is among your fingers, on photgraphy god holt it...(and Nikon, Canon, Sony ex....)

I am little-bit skeptical about paintings or drawings photography, but this is different, because it's your painting of your well know photo :)
For me very skillful work. Pleasure to see it ,... and congrats.

You are a great painter as well and I agree with Rafal but I don't know how to rate such kind of work...

You paint better than I take pictures. Class work Chris

Thanks for sharing! As Rafal said - pleasure to see and congratulations!
I needed some time to discover that photography and painting are ruled by the same principles.
Now I understand your portraits better - they were just created by the painter :)
Also don't know how to rate such kind of work...

There's a few things I'm not sure about. The horse seems to be well fed by the muscles on his legs so I'm thinking the ribs are way to visible. Also the tail, not very realistic, too short perhaps...
