One Girl and her Horse

All Taken on E5, 12-60mm & FL-50r

Thanks for looking

Re: One Girl and her Horse

I like the black&white Number 2 but because her boots are absolutely ginormous and pointing a funny way I'd crop it to just below the knees.

Re: One Girl and her Horse

I'll second Ulfric's comment, No.2 probably my fav.
B&W works well, composition is good, good feel for the relationship between the horse and the lass, knees ok for me but yes the foot position might look better angled slightly toward the camera. Cracking image though and as
No.1 I love . . . but the lovely lass is neither looking at the horse nor toward the camera, and for some reason it doesn't quite gell with me so doesn't get my fav rating. Still, I wouldn't mind that photo on my wall if I was the lass, as it is a lovely image.
No.3 instantly reminded me of good old Velvia film and its wonderful saturated colours! Is it the same lass riding? I presume so but she looks quite different.

Regards
Chris

Thanks for the comments Chris, Much appreciated. Maybe its not clear in the photo, but she was looking into the horses eye (s) but thank you

Probably me seeing it as her face being beside the horse's rather than slightly behind!
I see I didn't finish the sentence as someone turned up just as I was writing it and when I came back I pushed the send button, but I was going to add how pedantic I felt I was being when really these are such lovely photos and she must be really chuffed with them.

Regards
Chris

Re: One Girl and her Horse

Well I definitely have to vote for No.1 of your second set!!
This I feel has much more visual linkage and a sense of connection between the girl and the horse, and makes for another lovely image.

Regards
Chris

Re: One Girl and her Horse

Stephen great shots - however in 3 the horse is "falling in" as the rider does not have a secure inside leg and hand "helping the horse bend around the corner!" = bad score in dressage competitions and the walk is probably unbalanced too !

The horse is also "leaning on the bit" and "pulling on the riders hands" which in turn is developing a "thick neck" and "not a good topline". Because of the horse not using its hind quarters to push the front end through "its hind legs are in another country" and it is "unbalanced" ! as many commentators would say !

It is a beautiful horse and owner !
