I'd like to see the rider's facial expression as he is going down! I had a few of those. One time the horse refused to go over the jump, I did but without a horse. Great timing and capture of man and beast. Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hello Brian,a very good action shot, your timimg was spot-on, no blur that I can see.
The horse is obviously thinking...what is going on? Why can't she hold on?
As Eleu has said, it would have been a bonus to have the expression of the rider, but nevertheless, a good picture.
Tfs, regards Jean.
Hi Bri,this one works very well for the theme,you already mentioned in your notes about not getting the ladies facial expression,but you certainly have captured the action. In the thumbnail I did not notice the empty stirrup on the left ,nor the lady riders leg under the horse's belly,man I'm surprised she wasn't injured,just her pride I guess.A silly question, but is that the jump behind her,it looks all of 2ft tall?

The horse looks like making grimace to his poor rider...

Perfect timing for this action shot. Quite an interesting expression on the face of this horse! A nicely shot presentation of this sport with the jockey falling off the animal!

Got to agree with that horse facial expression. Doesn't look too relax at that moment..)) I can only assume that the jockey ended up on the grown.
I really like this shot. The proportions in composition, and the angle choosen to shot it, makes it very interesting. Good exposure and contrast.

A great posting to the theme !!
Indeed, a shame you couldn't get HER expression. It looks like the rider is falling. In that case the expression would not be that happy. ;-)
Good action shot, with good sharpness and exposure.
Composition good too.

A wonderful action shot with amazing details and contrasts, Brian!
Superb light management and well balanced exposure make this work so pleasing to enjoy.
The colors are natural and POV is excellent.
A belated suitable entry to Friday's theme!

A decisive moment well captured, with good focus and sharpness. It is easy to imagine the expression of the rider!
