A beautiful set of images.

#2 is my favourite one for its beautiful colours, composition,sharpness and the horse up front makes this a great image.

A wonderful series with No. 2 and 3 being my choices. Great composition, colors and sharpness on all and the timing on No. 3 .

A fine series, each one very well seen.

 

But the sharpening seems extreme?

Kirk - I only went extreme on the Practice jump shot, there was a logic for it at the time, but now it escapes me...

Wow, these are all excellent photographs. I like the variety of moments, actions, interactions, and the horses are gorgeous! A great set; are you thinking maybe a book one day?

Thanks again, Larry and David. Your comments are much appreciated.

 

Larry - I'm not yet thinking of a book, this is a long term story I work on in my spare time. I guess it will depend on where the final edit goes once I feel the work is ready.

 

Cheers

#2 of the horses on the ranch is my favourite. There is something mystifying about it.

Agree Kirk, too much sharpening on the 3rd.

      Yesterday I visited the Sierra Nevada north of Truckee California; after about a mile along a washboarded gravel road I found a meadow filled to overflowing with wild mountain light and the promise of a drenching. At the meadow's edge a pair of Mountain Bluebirds was converting invertebrates into the next crop of blue bug-eaters:

      A few friends of mine and I went photographing together at a local track meet. Quite a challenge to shoot with a manual-focus SLR. All the same, I got some results I was quite happy with.
      Leica R8/DMR + 90mm lens (circa 1968) and 180mm lens (circa 1984).
