    Love your photos, very nicely done! I especially like the horse and rider splashing along in the lake.

    Shooting out of doors in bright light is very challenging. You need the right filters to reduce the too high contrast between the light on the human's skin, and the dark shadows of hte dark horse. Also, utilising a shallow focus you can make the back ground fade out and keep the subject in a tighter focus (bareback girl in water), so the pilings in teh background are not drawing unwanted attention.

    Those are fantastic! I mean it, nice work. I just take photos for fun but I love getting pictures from different angles. I lay on the ground and hold the camera in the air and it ends up with some cool shots.

    Thanks tiny! I usually keep a "polarizer" filter on my lenses, since I'm really bad a recapping and I'm frequently on dusty situations.

    As for the shallower focus, I assume you mean getting closer to the subject? I see how those darn pilings are distracting. I did remove a few things from the background and foreground (believe it or not)! I'm not that great at it, but I try! Hah

    The ones from the the beach I edited with lightroom. I LOVE lightroom! It's does everything I wanted a photo program to do and the funny thing is my mother (who doesn't know the first this about photography) bought it on accident!

    The rest were edited on basic software that comes on any old computer.
