I got this yesterday at a fox hunt in West Clare, the wether was pretty misty. Before anyone asks, no foxes were injured, I understand its been two years from a fox was caught, they are canny foxes in West Clare.

I would really appreciate feedback.

Bloody superb! One of the most dynamic hunt shots I've seen for a long time. As you've posted for critique, I'd maybe lighten a touch and add a little sharpening. But nothing else. Well Done!
Horse looks to be enjoying things as well, ears are well forward.

If you know the name of the rider, have you thought about sending this to Horse & Hound. They pay for submissions and might like this one.

Cats-123, Whipspeed, believe me, I was more worried about the horse than it was about me. These animals are breed for this, when you see the excitement in their eyes and impatience to get started, it makes it all worth while....

A super and dynamic shot, you wern't very lucky with the weather ! I agree with the other comments but I think you could go even further with the lightening of the horse , so I've done a mod that way also pherhaps darken the sky at the top to increase the drama.

Excellent shot indeed. My sister in law lives in Moveen so I know about the canny people and animals there! Perfect camera settings resulting in a really dynamic action shot from a great perspective. A little positive exposure compensation may have lightened the horse against the sky, however would also have slowed the shutter speed, requiring an ISO increase but its a small point.


Ive loaded a mod with the horse and rider a little lighter; sharpened a little more; and Ive cropped to bring the horse more to the right and a little lower to place them further from the edge of the frame on the left.




Hope you find this constructive,


regards


Willie
