Meet Chili :-)

Amazing the masking power of Nik Color Efex. Here I darkened the background and all stray hair remained unaffected.

I dont know why but my 135 doesnt seem to focus properly when the subject is relatively far away, say 30 meters or something.

Could be my camera

The challenge of shooting exciting photos of the awfully boring sport of dressage, i did it this way from the very top of the arena with the 135. :)

I really like this ... it's quite surreal (like dressage itself). Have you tried a different crop (excuse the pun!)? ... so that there is more space in front of the horse and rider than behind them. I'm not suggesting 'rule of thirds' composition. I just think that the image might be more balanced with the subject a little right of centre.

Thanks! it is indeed as surreal looking as the sport itself is. :) i have many different shots like this, even with horsejumping and those shots look bizarre.. but i have tried many variations of cropping these with centered subjects, off-centered, tight and wide crops plus many more. I might post some later on but i don't want to spam this thread with all of them.

Well ... this image stopped me in my tracks. It's very creative.

I think the thread could carry the weight of a couple of variations in composition/cropping. I'd be interested, anyway.

Playing with the image on-screen, I do think cropping the right hand edge of the shot produces something that is more pleasing to my eye. But you need to be careful not to lose the weirdness. I don't think the usual 'rules' apply here.

Edit: Incidentally, I don't think you are going to make it onto the front cover of 'Horse and Hound' with this image ... but you might try giving them a look at it. You never can tell.

One more before i get to bed, i'm off to shoot new one's tomorrow. :)
This one is almost a square crop, tighter yet symmetrical and with some 'air' left around the subjects.

... quite bizarre ... puts a smile on my face

These shots seem to emanate from some sort of alternative reality ...

... dressage, synchronised swimming, that strange thing that female athletes perform with sticks and ribbons ... they all seem to belong in a different universe.

Well, you've nailed dressage.

Let's try one from the horse jumping competitions i shot yesterday, this is equally bizarre with the weird angle but it gives some quite unique shots of it. Not the usual look from ground level everyone else shoots. :)
