    Thierry - Interesting to compare these images to the bicycle road race ones on this thread: UCI Road Race Champs

    Of the five images posted, I think #5 stands out for its crispness, framing, exposure and capture of the expressions on the rider's and horse's faces. The others might stand a bit of cropping to home in on the horse and rider.

    BTW should the title be "Cross" rather than" Croos"? But then who knows what weird sports you have in La Belle France

    thanks for your comment david. the fifth is my favorite too. It seems that someone corrected my mistake with "Croos" instead of "cross".

    I gave a look to the UCI thread that you linked. Nice shots

    Hello Thierry,

    I admire your photography skills in all these shots, but what a great capture for horse and rider expression and the alignment of their bodies in the last one! The first is very nearly as captivating. It's a treat to view your equestrian photos.
