WOW i love this design (O:
The name really does suit this piece so well(O: I really love the idea of the horses taking their freedom...

I gave you (4) for vision because it’s clear to me that you really thought this through and got my attention.

Originality got a wonderful (4 and a half) it is not something i have seen done on DA before.

Sadly I gave you a (3) for Technique: the front horse seems to be too blurred and it still looks a bit cut out. I must say you did well with the lighting and the effect it creates is great. Also wonderful use of stock

Impact (5) really stunning idea and would love to see more of your work in the future.

Regards Nicolene Lorette design

Lovely. I wish this was available in a widescreen format for wallpaper! I would gladly pay for the honour of having this grace my desktop.

Calliopes are one of my favourite things, and this brings the dream I've had in my head since I was a child right out in front of my eyes. Lovely execution.

I'd like to see more of the carousel patterning on the second horse as it fades between the first and the last. The last horse looks like it is on another plane of existence, so that technique there could have been executed a bit better, in my opinion.

That said, they are nitpicks and the image is still magical and lovely. Thank you for sharing this. Keep on creating! <3

Voilà à quoi rêvent les chevaux de manège chaque nuit. j'écris en ce moment une petite histoire autour du cheval de bois de ma mère que je restaure : c'est une petite jument de 70 ans qui rêve chaque nuit qu'elle devient un vrai cheval. Elle rejoint le pays où rêvent tous les chevaux de bois, elle s'est trouvée un fiancé, un bel étalon de carousel (tous les chevaux de manège se rêvent en étalons.). Très belle manipulation. Nous avons tous besoin de rêver.

great piece.. i love the concept here and the use of color...
only thing that catches my eye is, some of the pole seem a little off in lighting and the whole wheel seems a bit crooked but such a great piece of imaginative imagery...

I hate saying this but you should add a bigger watermark to your pictures, this one is so easy to remove because the background is black so they can just paint over it or cut the image, it should be bigger and in the middle of the picture :(

My watermark in on all the picture (look at the background, where it is more visible), it will be hard to remove it. But it is the reason why it is soft: if not, the picture will be alterate. :)

Thank you! The worse for me is that the thief pretends to fight against breathcancer to do a personal profit (I had a breathcancer in 2001)...

I added a watermark to my pictures, but it is too late for pictures already stolen. This picture was already published on the "roseric" blog, which was recently closed thanks to the dA members who reported to the host. I suspected it circulates now everywhere :(

You know what: I'm tired...
