I think that I found a way to eliminate the problem with the cropped hazer and horse.
That says it all. I never saw anything quite like that. It tells a story.
What is interesting to me is where you must have been standing to get a somewhat downward view of the action. Were you up in the stands somehow? Looking down gives it a different perspective. Pretty interesting shot and I have done what you did re: the crop issue or sometimes used depth of field filters on post to fuzz them into pseudo bokah to minimize things I can't quite crop out. Nice job.
I criticized your earlier post because of the cut off horse and Cowboy. This post makes me think it isn't a total loss. As odd as it looks, I like it very much. You done good here, congratulations.
