    Jumping in the rain

    Hi all of you,

    As I said in my last thread, no new pictures up to the beginning of the new season of championships.

    However, I would like to submit to your comments this picture. We say often in France that a nice picture require a nice weather and a nice light. This picture has been taken with an hawful light and raining time.

    Good review

    Thanks

    Thierry

    Another masterful capture of horse and rider. In this one I do find the flag or marker on the structure to the right (as we look at it) of the horse's nose very distracting. Could this be cloned out?

    Hi Thierry,

    I agree with the second version.

    I think, if mine, I'd tone down the bird motif thing, assuming we don't want to remove it.

    Other than that, I have little to suggest, as usual, your timing, focusing, control of depth of field, exposure and tonal range are an example to us all.

    ... and the little? (I had to suggest)

    Well, the fast shutter speed has frozen all the rain to tiny pin pricks of light whereas streaks would look better, being more obviously rain.

    I'm not sure what you can do about it now though - if they were not quite so bright, or could be smeared in PP?
    I don't know - it could ruin a good picture if it doesn't work well.

    Not sure that helps much,

    Thanks Dave,

    I tried different methods to remove or reduce water drops (noise remover, contrats...) but without really positive results. I thought it was raining, so it was raining . I decided to keep it like this.

    BTW Dave I had a technical problem uploading my picture and finally I created a double thread. Plaese as moderator could you remove the dummy post. thanks

    Yes, I wasn't that hopeful anything could be done.

    Cheers,
