Haven't been on in a long time, too busy out in the field pushing my camera and my craft to the limit. Shooting indoor amateur equestrians can be really challenging and rewarding all at the same time. The lighting conditions are often very very poor (really pushing my D3s to the limits) and no flash is ever allowed for the obvious reasons.

I think that emotional content is an image's most important element, regardless of the photographic technique. Much of the work I see these days lacks the emotional impact to draw a reaction from viewers, or remain in their hearts.  Anne Geddes

I really like this - the relationship of horse and rider, the soft colours and the light.

Here's another shot of the same rider. I will say that I am really impressed with the dynamic range of the D3s. You would literally be shocked on how bad the lighting was in this building. As we all know, what we can see by often times isn't enough to shoot by. Put on a lot of restrictions within the environment only makes it even more challenging. It really pays to understand the qualities and behavior of light. All I did was visually scanned the arena and watched where the light fell best, waited for the rider to come into frame, and then hoped that I can pull it off in post.

You certainly found the right spot for the light. A stunning image.
