This piece is really beautiful! I love the lighting and ambiance. Those colors... I might be biased, because I do love darkness, glowing things, rainbows, and starry skies... but then again who doesn't?

The composition of this is strong in my opinion - it looks as good as a thumbnail as it does full-size, and it's a rather classic pose. Even though it's not that exactly 'original', I don't think that's a bad thing. Iconic can be awesome too - remix culture!

The technique isn't bad, but I would like to see a *few* more details, maybe on the rocks in the foreground, the flow of the mane and tail. Something about the moon's exposure seems not-quite-right... the stars near it probably shouldn't look that different from the rest in the sky, too? Also, Can I ask if you use a mouse or a tablet?

All in all I like this, I think this is nicely done, and it brightened up my inbox.

I'm always excited to see beautiful fantasy equines in my message center and this one caught my eye right away with the illuminated and colorful wings.

Some things to point out though would be that when I first clicked on this I felt the horse itself falls a bit flat. It looks rather dull and a bit darker than I think suits the setting.
I'd try giving more light to the horse (as well as the clouds it is standing in/on since the wings appear to give off more light than is being reflected back off of the horse and clouds.

Additionally I'd add some highlights to the horse. If you look at photos of show horses they tend to have a really pretty sheen to them and you can see the highlights very easily with good lighting. Those highlights make the horses stand out more and they catch the eye with the beautiful contrasts it creates.
The mane and tail could also use a bit more flow to them.

Adding more waved hairs to give a sense and feel of wind blowing etc, can add a lot as well.

The edges around the moon and the wings look really sharp, since both have glowing type effects, you can easily smooth that out and help it blend it in more with a soft brush with low opacity, adding to the glow and softening the edges at the same time.
