Horses from Poser, the village my own modeling, the rest is Vue, and some post work with Photoshop. Thanks also to Thomas for giving me a hand with the fog.

Beautiful landscape, most impressive. I agree with Thomas about the horses, but understand the problem. In a panorama of this scale it would be difficult to adequately reduce the size of the horses and still leave them clearly recognisable for what they are, and you can't really bring them more into the foreground without upsetting the balance of the image. So I recklon leaving them as they are is an acceptable bit of artistic license.
An absolutely marvelous image! The mountains are divine! I think the horses are the perfect scale, I feel that the village needs to be a little larger to balance the image. If the village was a little larger, we could see your fabulous modelling better :)10++++++
THIS is why you are on my favorite artists list! Excelent artwork. It gets my vote. I have to side with Shari123 on the scale of the horses. It looks to me if they trotted back into the scene their heads would come just above the fence walls, perfectly. I do think a little (and I do mean little) vegitation in the foreground might make for better realism, but we are talking an increase from 10.9 to 11 on a scale from 1 to 10 :-) I can't wait to see what you do next.
Thank you all for these kind and helpful words! I would like to credit Thomas again, his comments and ideas helped me a great deal with this image. About the horses, well i guess all of you are right :) Making them smaller would make the mountains look higher. But then the horses will lose some impact... I could make the village larger, as Shari said, but then again, it will diminish the mountains.... I think i learned a lot about scale and proportion by making this image, and by reading your comments!
