    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 owners always present their horses to us to take pictures of. There may be up to 10 owners with their horses in a day. I agree that pristine would be great and, yes, we do sometimes clean up the messy marks off of their shots if they request it.

    We take pictures of owners horses for the owner and not for general sale to the public. As you quite rightly say - a different style of shot would be required to put in. For example, a calender! These are natural shots for the owner to treasure.

    Sorry you don't like them.

    To be sure, the photoshop job is done better than most but the problem is that you keep saying these are natural shots. They aren't.

    Cor - you are determined aren't you! Not sure what else to do to prove it to you.
    Explained it - you don't believe
    Offered evidence - you ignore
    Tried reason - sidewalled

    Where are you? If you are in the UK, maybe we should come to you and prove it by doing a shoot for you and your horse - no charge. See the images that we take and come back on here and confirm to all?

    You have some special way to make a horse jump while at liberty and have them look like they are jumping over an invisible obstacle?

    Yes and no- the horse was just excited to be out in the field. It was new grass as he hadn't been there before and he was frolicking around - sometimes the camera captures some awesome acrobatics when shooting at so many frames per second. Would you like to see some more?

    NEW grass? With dead canadian thistles and fully flowered dandelions?

    Sorry - you are digging yourself deeper!

    What's the explanation for the dry horse jumping the waves? Why is he jumping at the wrong angle, which was probably correct for the jump that has been shopped out.
