DISMOUNTED JOCKEY

By Imagephotographics
Afternoon everyone !

Thanks for your comments & clicks on my last up-load and to Graham for his most appreciated UA !

We had a good afternoon out yesterday at another Point to Point meeting. This jockey was in the first race, but just as they got to the start line, the horse threw the jockey and run wild, it took them nearly half an hour to capture him, and by that time he was in a right state - this image is of the jockey walking him back to the paddock, as you can see the horse is still playing up, something obviously spooked him !

I have a busy afternoon ahead of me today - so will try to catch up with everyone tonight.

Chris

A lovely shot. I like the sense of movement created by the angle of the horse. Excellent work.

The clarity in this is outstanding, may I venture to ask what you use for your black and white conversions? They really are quite special.

A wonderful capture. Love the Orton effect in the pp and the conversion and composition are, as usual, first class.

What a fine action shot. The details of the horses veins are quite remarkable. He certainly has been spooked by something, or has a gotten a bee sting. This is a fabulous image.

I really, really like this one Chris. Super clarity and razor sharpness where it's needed. The way the muscularity and vein work on the horse is brought out is fantastic. Black and white works beautifully for this image. Gee, I wish I had taken it.
