Challenge: Best of 2004 (Advanced Editing III*)
Camera: Canon EOS-10D

Aperture: 2.8
ISO: 200
Shutter: 60

4 inches of rain limited the scheduled shoot, hard to tell from the peacefulness of this shot that there were two dozen pro equine photogs from around the country jostling for shooting position. This is a Paso Fino stallion and his trainer, and the shot won an international pro equestrian portrait contest.

this the main subject is in perfect siluette, the poo in the backgound is eyecatching. :) just thought you'd want to know. I'm sure you got that in your other comments :)

Beautiful composition & detail, with good control of the lighting!
Well seen and I'm sure was worthy of the wait for the "right" moment ((8))

This is what I believe is the epitome of a silhoutette. This is such a beautiful piece and I like it more and more every time that I see it. I think that this might make my favs once it starts to grow on me.

Nice silhouette, a little cliched but I still think this works well, my only suggestion would be a slightly shallower dof to separate the horse and rider from the background a bit better. 7.

It is so good at first I thought it was a statue. Perfect pose and outstanding silhouette.

excellent composition, would be a strong image if the focus was just a tad sharper. all the same, i don't think this is something you'd see every day, so i'll just say, good job, and good luck with the challenge! 7 from me.

Try as I might, I can only find one tiny thing to wish were different. It would be perfect if the horse were standing on something other than concrete. A minor minor minor thing, and aside from that, it is THE definitive photo of a horse and rider. 9

Wonderful use of available light has created an awesome picture.
I see pixelization around the edges of the figure, did this image have to be enlarged a lot?

Nice use of backlighting. I like how the horse and cowboy are holding their heads in a similar way. Is it raining in the bg? I like the painting-like look.

Very nice feel. Love the light edge along the neck of the horse and the diaphonus tail.
