Yep. Hardly what I'd call 'professional' photography.

That is how it looks to me too.


Which is fine, I guess, if you are selling them as artwork and people know that.

Actually, the last one is a composite but the first 2 are as shot with NO editing whatsoever.

Photoshop does sometimes play a part, for example, removing fence lines, cleaning up poo and removing some distractions such as buckets in the background and lead ropes but we like to keep them as natural as possible.

Thanks for looking.

Here is another one that is straight off of the camera and another that has been worked on - can you work out which is which?

Sorry - I don't buy it. No shadows on the second photo. The horse in photo one is clearly jumping something.

If you were asked to not post, why are you?

Firstly I am responding to the cynics out there who want to decry our hard effort. That's all. If our work offends so greatly then we will let the administrator confirm what they want us to do and this will be my last post.

Secondly, the first horse is not jumping anything - it is a classic 'liberty' shot taken as the horse is playing naturally around the paddock. There is no need to remove jumps (nor riders and tack for that matter) when your positioning and speed of camera is right.
The second shot, again was timing and if you take the time to look there are in fact shadows in the grass behind the horses, in front of the fence post. If we were going to edit them then we would have removed the fence first don't you think?

Finally, we are a team of 27 full time equestrian photographers and have been trained and doing this for over 7 years. The shots you see are real and are the result of experience.
