I put a little movement into the shot and sharpened a bit, just an idea for a print, hope you like it.

Thanks for the Mod. Chen

Looking at the levels, this is very nearly underexposed so I've uploaded a mod. in which I've simply applied an "S" curve to liven it up a little. I also sharpened it slightly.

Hope it's OK.

Thanks to every one for the comments, the mods are ok but overall I prefer the original, of course I am biased but mods are a personal choice and I accept we may never agree, that being said thanks for your time and input.Grin

Best wishes

You've done a great job with the composition here by keeping the horse clear of background distractions and effectively framing it with the tree branches. The harsh contrasty light in these kind of shots often leaves the rider's face in shadow and I'd suggest subtly dodging it back in a bit. Overall I'd be tempted to apply a subtler curve than Jester's to retain whatever detail in the white clothing and just boost the midtones a little bit. And finally if you're happy with that kind of thing I'd suggest going in really close up and giving a tiny highlight in the horse's eye

Just my thoughts., nice work anyway

Thank Stephen, I agree that a little subtle adjustment may improve the image somewhat, thank you for your input.

Best wishes

Arthur.
