Hi Bryan,
oohh I would of loved to see that show! Great shot of the action though! TFS

great shot, love when horses do that :)
you weren't so lucky with weather :(
great action photo!

Excellente photographie. Bravo

Vraiment un très bon example "d'un moment decisif" "decisive moment" et que parfois, la composition est crée de par le centre. Tout l'interet est sur le cheval et son cavalier.

Pour en revenir a "instant decisive" On ressent que le cheval est en position vertical maximun, et du coté du cavalier, l'angle, sa position, et son regard, rajoute a l'intensité de cette photo.

Parcontre, je trouve personnellement les couleurs un peu trop bleuté. Quand meme rien de drastique....)))

Tres bon travail

Hello Bryan,

You did well to capture this moment without a lot of motion blur! It is a fine capture of the magnificent horse at the extreme of its 'rear'.
At first, I thought it was a little too centrally placed but, on reflection, you are absolutely right; the horse is facing one way and the rider the other, so it needs to be central.
Perhaps it would benefit from a little more saturation, otherwise, a fine shot.

My warmest regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Bryan,

Very nice action shot, I don't think the horse can go any higher. Good shutter speed to freeze the motion, and the central placement works rather well here IMHO. Nice DOF too, so that we can see this is part of an event.
