[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken last week on the cross country course at the Burgham Horse Trials in Northumberland.

PP Work - a set of 5 images. Held the camera steady focused on the jump, keep ISO high to freeze the horse and rider going past and loose off the shots as they come past being careful not to pan. I kept the last shot as the canvas to work with and cut and pasted the four horses before it being careful to match points up on the horse with horizon/jump etc. so keeping the pasted image exactly where it should be, I de-saturated each layer and reduced the opacity of each pasted image, the first horse in the sequence is 50% opacity, then 60, 70 and 80%. Merged all layers, adjusted shadow and highlight, sharpened and increased contrast. resized for TL.

Hope you like it.

Hello Brian,
The movement is beautifully caught in this presentation. And light screening to actual mode at the end is looking interesting. Nice experiment, well done. Thanks for sharing.
