I like it. It's not slap-bang in the centre, the exposure and depth of field looks nice, can't find much to fault it on. It would have been nice to have a little more to look at in the background, but that's not something you have a lot of control over I suppose :)

I might crop it a bit, but other than that it looks great. Nice horsey.

I like it. It looks like he is watching you from the side.

tighter crop, otherwise looks very good. I think it needs the horse to fill the majority of the frame, or it needs something else of interest in the shots.

Thanks for advice, I have tried a tighter crop. I wasn't sure quite how to crop it so tried rule of thirds on eye, but if anyone has advice on how to better crop it I would appreciate it.

do the crop, but don't dead-center it. and its perfect


I use a {3+2}D Mark [10-8] and a (23-16)D and a Nikon D(75+75)x2s and a Nikon D(38+2)x

Since the subject is looking to the right I would crop all the dead space on the left. Just my 2 cents.

I agree with your crop and logic. The subject as a whole is long and fits landscape orientation (centered) but the head is the main part which does fall on the 1/3 line ("Rule of Thirds" guidline). I would have just let a bit more on top.
