Our local agricultural show is on this weekend. I went down to check out some of the eventing yesterday and got these shots, I love the look of the Grey horse.







all shot with canon 300D and 90-300 lens

I think the first one is the best.
The second would be nice but the constant blur all around the horse lets it down. In PS try increasing the blur behind the subject in focus to give the appearance of bokeh.

Thanks for the hint, Ive never used the blur tools and Im still trying to work out the best way to distract the eyes from the busy backgrounds.

Thats a really nice first shot, who took that and with what camera??

Heres a few more taken on the same day.



I really love the way this horse looks as if he enjoys doing this:-)



I was happy enough with this next shot to do no editing on it at all



This next shot is also unedited and the horse refused the jump after I clicked the shutter, he refused again and was out of the competition. I believe the flags in front of the the jump that you cant see played a big part in many of the refusals that day, you can see them in the background, all different colors and it was very windy.

Well then, you should seemine. You wouldn't know whether to laugh :Gor cry .

Having said that it must be 35 years since I sat on a horse, but I can still remember the feeling of triumph when I realised that I was still aboard after the poor little thing had done its best to leap over a 12 inch log !

I am sure that my face didn't carry that serene and happy expression that yours does, Amy !
