This is a very fine piece of art work. First of all, I like the texture detail of the horse, because it brings out a realistic standing. What gives the sense of reality is the shading which a good number of people don't do. To add to that, you included you signature wich blens in with the paint around it so it's not very visible, but it's still definately there. Also, my eyes were reallly drawn to the contrast of colors bringing a good touch to the art. Also, I like how you added the fact that the ears are blowing in the wind, not just the mane and tail.

Masterfully done equine drawing.

The detail and shading are exquisite, very realistic but not to the point where they'd lose the artistic look to excessive photorealism. There is an enjoyable contrast between the highlights and the dark areas - the forms are well defined, the muscles are clearly visible which shows the tension of movement. The mane and tail are excellently drawn, I like how they wave and blend with the background to complete the dynamic feeling.
As for the background itself, it's better than the original, it creates the feeling the horse is running through mists and dustclouds, which makes the scene much more dramatic.

The one big drawback which I see is the composition of the piece. It feels somehow "floating" - the horse is not in the center (which is seldom a good decision) but not positioned by the 1/3 rule either and considering the lack of other objects around it, this stands out. Also, it's feet need more space underneath, even though they are not entirely visible. The viewer subconsciously "completes" them and then the horse "falls out" from the picture.

Technically, the drawing is truly excellent, and I consider a better composition would have turned it into a masterpiece.
