I agree; your photos are stunning! You obviously have a good camera and know how to execute some great captures. My only critique would be the Rule of Thirds
. This is where you "divide" the image into 3 rows of 3, placing an important part of your focus (an eye, ear, etc.) on a cross hair. A lot of your subjects are placed in the direct center of the image, which can become rather droll. My camera had an setting where you could turn on the "Thirds" and work better with composing your pictures, though mostly novices use it I found it helpful for hasty photos. Lol
For example, look at these equine portraits: (Give it a few seconds to upload the actual picture) A Girl and Her Horse II
Over the Field and Far Away
Hunter Horse: A Portrait
If there's one thing you may notice, all of the photos' contents (the horses) are not dead center of the frame. This helps to make the picture interesting. (Though it can be ruined if there's a lot of fuss in the background, like at dog shows where you see a million feet in the photos. The viewer doesn't know where to look.) Dynamic portraits
also help keep things interesting.
Just rest assured: You do have a great eye when it comes to photos. Some other tips, from when I took photos of horses:
- Have the sun to your back. This helps the horse "shine," bringing out the beauty we all know and love.
- For light-colored horses, like white/grays, waiting for a less sunny day may help; the shadows won't "disappear."
- Carry at least some sort of camera with you always. You never know when something worth capturing may cross your path. (:
- Be safe!
