Adjust the curves in Photoshop to lighten this picture and then add a bit of contrast. I find it amazing that you had the horse reasonably well in focus despite the 1/40th shutter speed, this would ordinarily be far to slow to shoot show jumping. Also the 2.8 should have put at least some of the background out of focus if you had used a longer focal length, say 200mm or higher. Pity about the busy background.

Good capture! It's just too dark and flat.

Backgroung clutter. Should have picked another jump to shoot with less clutter.

This looks underexposed

The border is distracting and the white balance is off. The border is whiter than the wall and fence.

The border doesn't do it for me but I didn't downgrade for it either. The background is too busy, a shallower depth of field would have helped this photo a lot. 6

Technically not a great shot, but a nice action freeze. White balance is too cool/blue, border doesn't add to the shot, some hazy spots, maybe dirty lens?

Very clear. I like the border too.

A nice stopped time image. The border hurts the shot and the rider's head appears too close to the top - there is also a weird fogginess to the image. 5

Good capture however the bg is distracting. Less DOF would probably help with that.

there appears to a blue color cast that needs to be cleaned up.

Nice capture and good timing of the jump! I think it would be better, however, without the border.

Darn bush. Nice action shot, but a little dark.
07/16/2005 04:53:24 AM
This is a very busy picture there are too many things taking from the horse and rider. Very tough to enjoy the shot
07/14/2005 05:38:19 PM
the border is definitely not working here.

Great job of capturing the action. What I don't care for is with all the objects and signs, the shot looks very cluttered. Maybe a shallower DOF would have helped to separate the subject from the other elements. I don't think the border is doing you any favors here, in fact, I think it adds to the clutter.

This jumper needs to tighten his leg!, but I still like it
07/13/2005 07:51:48 PM
The image is quite cluttered and poorly lit. You sure caught the right time to snap, however.

Nice timing on this one! The ocus is pretty good too for such a fast movement.

cropped a little tight on top, or need to omit the white border. Maybe another angle would not be as busy a background? Don;t get me wrong - I do think it is a good photo.

Great shot, very clear and focused. Could use a boost in brightness.
