So really unsure if this works or not; cut too much away (or rather grabbed too little as this was an in motion shot) or too much or the wrong angle?

Been messing around with a few different angles and perspectives in shots so a bit out of my depth to know if this "works" or not; it might just be that this angle works but the background lacks any real point of interest/draw for the viewer.


As always any comments/crits 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

I think this angle would work as a closer crop - focusing on and drawing the attention to the eye of the horse. I'd cut out most of the rider, just showing the hands and knees basically. In this particular image the rider is a little off-balance, which throws the pic off. If you have any room lower in the pic, I'd retain some of that, around mid-calf on the rider if possible.

Horse shows are tough to shoot - you did well really.
