These horses were used to pull heavy equipment on the fields, but nowadays their only on duty in summer to pull coaches with tourists on the domain hengelhoef...tried to give the picture a painting like look , applied the dry brush effect and applied a new action filter for the frame...if you are interested it can be downloaded here..

very nice pp work, and thanks for the link :)


Hi Leon ! This is a beautiful image of a "heavy-duty" horse. It's a pity the brown blob on the right seems to grow out of the horse's leg. This could easily have been made softer with a blur, or the grass could have been cloned. For more realism in the "painting" try to cover with one of the artistic patterns that come with PS (such as watercolourpaper).
The link is interesting, but why not point to the whole collection of tips and tutorials on the same site ? Thanks anyway for having me look over there ;-)
Kind regards

Hi Leon,
Nice. The front end of a horse looks much better than the back end. ;) The pp work looks nice, I like the texture of the strokes. And the frame seems to go well with the horse, too. Nice work.

I immediately noticed the nice frame and went to the link. But they only work with Adobe PS and I work with PSP9, so I will have to look elsewhere. I also like the paintjob very much. I think you are very patient to achieve just the right brush stroke for the subject. Good work Leon.

Beautiful horse and a great shot Leon. The applied painting is just right and not overdone. Very nicely done. Sam

Nice effect it worked out well, the composition is great as well placing the horse to the side.

Nice PP work on this photo, Leon. Good composition to start with. The heavy frame complements very well the heavy horse. Nice work!

The frame looks so real! You are so good at PP work. :) Horses is one of my favorite animals, and you've done an excellent job showing its beauty.


Excellent PP work and lovely presentation. All together a great image!

This is a charming PP. Your treatment and framing have made it a classic. Love the choice of frame colour. Just wonderful'

Wonderful work Leon. They really are a beautiful animal. Brilliant PP work as usual. My paternal grandfather had 6 draft horses he used for carting grain around the time of the second World War. I can still remember those gentle giants. TFS,
