Good work with the B&W, it could really pass for old time if the soldiers were not so crisp and clean,,;))
Sweet, did you know the rider or wait for a passer by?
I still like this very much and am very happy to see your work. Wish I had got around to voting on this challenge.

Blomerus: Excellent photo! I love the dramatic and surreal feel to this photo.
Is this your first in this genre? Do you have any other similar photos on flickr or another site?

Congratulations once again.

I don't have an answer for the low vote thing you see too much of on many challenges, mis-guided or something else?
Thanks all and there is a shot of the set-up in my gallery now if you are interested.
Christian, I need to find some of those magnets you used... Very Cool!

Thanks all, this is all real, set up on an old overhead projector. I will put a photo in my gallery to give you an idea when I get home tonight. Give it about 10 hours, work keeps getting in the way of play time.
I tend to stick with the basic processing, curves, black, gray and white point selection, etc... I don't even know what "raytraced" is, will have to look it up...
Is it assumed voting is only done on the cropped version?

aaanouel: I'd bet it's fake.
