IMAGE: https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4196/34485665340_e1a9a6701b_b.jpg

Taken on Canon 7D and Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS L MII

Taken a few months back at a showjumping/cross-country event (yes backlog is huge and monstrous!). Came out rather nice, and one of the better dressage photos I got (seriously dressage is super hard to get any good photos in - timing is critical!)

As always any comments/critiques are most welcome.

Tools of the trade: Canon 400D, Canon 7D, Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS L M2, Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 OS, Canon MPE 65mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro, Tamron 24-70mm f2.4, Sigma 70mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 8-16mm f4.5-5.6, Raynox DCR 250, loads of teleconverters and a flashy thingy too

A beautiful portrait. My only quibble is that I'd prefer a wider crop to mid-chest with more forward space... I know that's not always possible though. That said, I'd be very happy to have this quality of shot on my HD.

Not anything to do with you, of course, but that bit is forced right under the poor thing's back molars. Not very comfortable for the horse.

Aye I did wonder about that, however as this was in a competition I put some faith in the judges not allowing any abuse; it might also be that this was a split second in time that the bit was quite in that specific position.
