You have caught the right moment of the stride really well. I have to say I am very envious of Martin!

Just beautiful. Superb extended trot. Love to see more pictures of this horse in action.

I like the pose and position of the shot but for me the picture is spoiled by the background, I feel you have too much DOF, if the background was less focused it would be great. A little PS magic is called for!

To Sarah a.k.a. whipspeed, This isn't extended trot, this is just medium trot. Extended trot is what I'll strive to capture next time as it is magnificent!


Thanks Dave but I've already done a fair bit of work on this to remove horrible double white tape running the entire length of the photo above the fence line. At this focal distance there wouldn't be less depth of field than this in my opinion so further manipulation would look very very odd don't you think? You'd need the shadow under the horse in tact. A sudden blur behind that would look really weird. So no, I'm not touching it again. LOL!

+ve Perfectly timed shot of gorgeous horse. Can't wait to see extended trot. Great shadow.

-ve Background is a bit busy but don't think blurring would help. Martin's white cap and face are a bit overblown. Ask him to wear a darker cap and apply a bit of face powder next time!

Tell him I'll help him exercise his horses if you're too busy!!

The action and balance of this picture are spot on. If it was mine I would work to perfect it as much as possible.

I think Gaussian (and even a hint of motion) blurring would help a bit. Just on the greenery of the trees though. This wouldn't affect the shadow cast by the horse and rider at all. However, you usually only like to manipulate digitally what you could do in a dark room don't you! (removing double white tape would be included in that i suppose) Smile

Look forward to seeing more Photo's. Always enjoy coming here...

I only clicked once. Why have I come on twice? Well just for emphasis I agree with the above two comments. Smile

+ve: Excellent composition.

-ve: The background is quite dark and clashes with the depth of colour of horse and rider. Is there anything to stop you taking a photo from the side of those bushes looking out to where you were to take this?

Heidi - yeah...the background would be worse on the other side. Lots of messy buildings/stable block etc.
