I tell ya, there just wasn't any good spots to shoot where there wasn't a ton of background distractions. these are a few of the better ones.

Well Steve,

You may have not been pleased with the backgound, but the riders and their horses are very nice captures regardless. The highlights on the horses is captured well.

Beautiful animals for sure Steve, and as usual, you have done a great job capturing their images. The busy backgrounds don't really bother me much, as they show the horses and riders in a real-world environment. You might get better overall shots out on rolling pasture, with beautiful mountains for backgrounds, but you would also probably not get many shooting opportunities. :wink:

thanks everyone,

In checking for Lost Highlights in NC4, many times I didn't miss the right exposure by much, other times they were off by as much as a 1/2 stop. btw, I'm using Fred Miranda's D2X CS Pro Sharpening plugin for PS, and really like it. For web shots, I usually set it to High ISO, Level 1, Low Halo, then check the Save as a Layer option, then dial back the opacity slider to anywhere from 50-80%. For full size shots, it's a much stronger setting.
