Another from yesterday's point to point meet. I tried tidying this shot up a bit and cloned out a landrover that was in the background.

I was quite pleased with the combination of moody sky and bright sunshine in this one.

This one seems to have made a better jump. Very clear, well taken.

I agree - very well exposed. It would have too easy to just set a high shutter speed to capture the horse but lose the sky.
Nice one.

Thanks everyone for the encouraging comments. This is the third point to point I've been to and it's the first one where I'm happy with the photos so the practice (and advice on here) has certainly helped. Many thanks.

The sky in this makes this a very dinamic picture. Get rid of the flag coming out of the horses neck.

Ah now thats what I call a racing picture! Excellent work! Cloning has been done pretty well! Like the little bit of blur on the front legs but total sharpness of horses eye and jockey. Probably wouldn't look half bad on the wall of the sponsors office!!
