Getting my 2nd DQ is very embarrassing. The date on my camera has been adjusted and hope never to get DQd again, lol

Fantastic shot!!! I'm sorry about your DQ.

Sorry to read about your disqual.. a lovely image nonetheless.

Congrats on your first ribbon! Nice image! ....and I am such a fan of horses doing well in DPC! I'm thinking the photographer may have been a little uncomfortable to get this shot. Lol! Well done! I love the atmosphere and action that you have captured.

I was hoping this would ribbon. It was my favorite. Congrats!
03/04/2009 06:11:56 PM
sorry to ramble here but forgot the border. it just calls more attention to the lack of real black in this image.
03/04/2009 06:09:15 PM
congrats on super capture. I gave it a 7. would have been an 8+ if crop would have created more white in front of horse (cropping just off tail on left). a 9 or 10 if blacks would have popped more. great job.
03/04/2009 05:03:54 PM
A marvellous b/w and action capture, love it a lot! Congratulations on your ribbon!
03/04/2009 01:00:12 PM

Really like this, wonderful tones and good action.
03/03/2009 04:14:45 PM
I like everything about the photo, though not the letterbox-style frame. A high vote from me.
03/02/2009 05:52:05 PM
great capture..too bad the crop is tight in the wrong side
03/02/2009 04:36:27 PM
03/02/2009 04:33:49 PM
Real nice action shot. The B&W conversion is good.
03/02/2009 12:05:02 PM
Spectacular photo, but the subject is a little cramped in the frame
03/01/2009 02:33:28 PM
Great detail here, this is one of my favorites so far. B&W a nice choice.
02/28/2009 08:55:30 PM
awesome shot!
02/28/2009 12:34:08 PM
Good shot Why the boarder?
02/28/2009 07:04:50 AM
Good exposure level and excellent contrasts. Looks like a million bucks in b/w and definitely expresses action. Much more to be said but I'm sure you'll get a couple dozen comments on this. 10+
02/28/2009 04:41:35 AM
what a beautiful shot...I really like the splashing snow and I can almost see the lasso moving in his hand...lots and lots of motion in this shot
02/28/2009 01:06:40 AM
Absolutely love this shot. Well done!
02/27/2009 04:08:24 PM
A great shot...what a joy this must have been. Not only photographing this, but just witnessing horse and rider work so elegantly together in the snow!
02/26/2009 03:42:36 PM
some might say they're in danger of riding out of the frame but I think the picture has terrific impact. Could it be the winner?
02/26/2009 10:45:27 AM
Original and Beautiful! 10. I hope it's a ribbon. GL
02/25/2009 02:02:38 PM
Very nice composition. I really like the b&w and sharpness.
02/25/2009 12:42:21 PM
made me think ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' JawnyRico for a moment. It's a great shot.
02/25/2009 05:05:34 AM
Fantastic photo with great tones, subject, and exposure (great control of the snow brightness). I think the ideal composition for this shot would have more dead space in front of the horse and rider, but that's just being picky.
