    Lovely action shot – and I really like the processing! Rider has nice soft hands and the horse looks happy – can’t ask for more than that:) (Love the whiskers too…)

  • Thank you, Den, I suspected that this one might be just up your street !!!!!!!!!!!

    OMG – hard to believe it’s so cold there with all that water around you, that normally leaves the temps a bit down! Keep warm!!!

    An excellent capture here Alan – so sharp on the horse’s face. Like the texturing too!

  • yes,Carol, the sharpness is thanks to the 500mm tele !! (and a steady hand, I don’t even own a tripod !)thanks once more !!
