I like the theme and the black and white presentation. Lighting looks good also.

My only remark is on the fine detail of the picture. I would have attempted to include all of the stirrup iron, including its edge on the bottom left corner which is missing now. That small vertical space (imagine it as a strip) would have come from the exclusion of the same amount of space from the right side (which now includes another item, unknown to me and undescriptable to the viewer).

I have used (and still own) cameras whose viewing aparatus does not display 100% of the space captured by the lens. I think you Canon dosn't give you 100% field of view.
I would suggest you then, when you use a (D)SLR, to try not to have your objects to the edges of the picture. I am not sure if your camera has live view so be more careful when composing.

If you ever try to shoot film be aware that modern printing (not the old wet prointing of the darkrooms) does not contain 100% of the image on the film negatives so be careful about the edges.

Overall the picture is good and it's pleasure to see new members developing a "seeing2 of black and white.Voted.
