Very nice. I know this is your style and I have to say (again) that I love it. And yes the third is super!

Nice. Interesting effect. I'm guessing a strong sharpening filter, then soft focus also applied? Maybe a saturation boost as well?

Ah- our winter season is here as of this week. Can't wait to get to the show!

Here's one of mine from last year.

These are great images but they appear to be over-processed somewhat...????? Sorry

There is a certain "style" that you have that, obviously, doesn't appeal to everyone. I, for one, love it! I immediately recognized these post-processing effects from viewing some of your "pier photographs" previously. So different from riffmax above who did a wonderful photograph as well.

The third is the best but a little soft on the eyes. Do you use focus tracking?

Beautiful action that you caught!!
Not all loves my PP but my style as I stated ..
Iโ€™m initially a drawing artist but I took up photography a few years ago and I need just to bump it up the way that I see things and itโ€™s not for everybody I know thank you for appreciating. Action shots like yours are not easy to capture and yours is by far very intriguing to me because you have the rider and horse right route should be

I suggest that the tight zoom has distorted the action, making it appear that the horse is jumping into a pile of boards, posts, and wheels. As a breeder of show horses for more than 50 years, and a retired AHSA judge, I feel a lack of freedom in the photos.

Is # 2 some sort of special gait? It doesn't seem natural, but then I know nothing about horses. #s 1 & 3 are super. I like your style.
