Hello, my friend the artist!
The boy has no distinct bold shadow as the horse has, so he appears in a state of levitation above the ground! Was he sitting on a magic carpet?!!
Your vignette effect adds drama and helps concentration on the mood.
A touching scenery.
Best regards.

hello Mujahid,
I always find your images so compelling, as it this one. Artistry for the soul!
Excellent B/W and the superb lighting on that magnificent horse.
Well done, Joni

Great vignetting effect here my friend. Excellent portraiture.
