Sorry, not believing you about the first shot.

I have watched many-a-horse run and play at liberty. Their leaping through the air looks nothing like a horse being asked to free jump over an obstacle.

If you want people to believe those are "natural" pictures you'd be better off posting on a non horse forum

Exactly, Dressage.

We're not stupid, even though it appears the OP would like us to be, and just ooh and ahh over his very photoshopped pictures.

That picture of the horse supposedly in the waves is what did it for me. That horse isn't even WET for crying out loud, and obviously jumping over something.

That first horse is jumping something at liberty. NO horse jumps like that while playing or 'just because'.

Please go peddle your 'artwork' to nonhorse people, OP. Maybe they'll believe you're marvelously talented at more than just photoshop.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

He is dry because he is smart and jumps over all the waves.

Look guys, we all know horses HATE getting wet. That's why they frolic gaily through the ocean waves without getting a droplet of water on them. Duh.

wow.

Clearly all professionals on this forum!

Quite happy to mail out sequence shots showing original metadata and build up to the shot. That should settle it as you can't mess with the file data

And what would that prove besides the fact that you DID alter the original picture?

Question - if you are a large group of professional photographers why take photos of horses who clearly show saddle/girth sweat marks? I would think clean and shiny horses with nice backgrounds would sell better.


Let's say the first photo is not shopped. It might sell well to horse loving kids and none-horse people. The vast majority of horse people will not believe that is a non-shopped photo.
If you are making photos for the horse market to purchase you might want to keep those things in mind.

It is the old willingness to prove I am not wrong should be enough to make them stop questioning me.

The metadata shows the original camera settings etc. and no reference to photoshop, as would show on an edited picture. The file sequence would show you the lead into the shot that I have shown with several frames prior and after (in fact we shoot for about 10 minutes during the liberty sequence - this particular sequence has 47 frames).

Hope this answers your question - if you would like to see the shots then I will happily send them to put this 'to bed'.
