I took this close up photo of our farrier putting a shoe on my wife's horse and to mke it 'moody' changed it to black and white. I am not sure whether it has worked but quite like the atmoshere.

Phenomenal image Bryan,
I love the atmosphere and impact. The composition working diagonally on vertical thirds has great balance and intimacy.
To completely nit pick I wonder if you could slightly adjust the contrast of the hoof slightly to improve it's rendition and also tidy up the crop on the right to remove the sliver of white.
That would lift it above excellent to perfect.
