Wow! Great timing on your part!

I honestly thought this would have done much better. The mere fact that you managed to capture this event was a bonus in my opinion. I truly did like this photo, and had it been just a tad crisper I would have scored it a 10.

Good job and keep up the good work.

Amazing and timely capture and one that would have made the local papers of only for the action. Bump.

IMHO I would have preferred to see the actual jump rather than the fall.

Ooh, I had to cringe as this was loading. That looks horrible. The focus is excellent, the action is amazing, I can almost feel the thud. The light is nice, not too harsh yet not so low that it obliterates details. The jockey's jodhpurs(?) have a bit of a hot spot on them but that fades into the pain of the image. I hope the horse and rider were okay after this. Good capture of a tough moment. 7

Excellent action photo. Surely not the Grand National?

I think this would be more impactful if you did a saturation of the colors. As it is, it seems kind of blanched out. The crop is a tad tight - I'd like to see more negative space around the subjects. The forus is clear and the stop action is good.
