Burghley Horse Trials

Recommended Posts


20170902_Burghley-Cross-Country_3314-copy.jpgOn Saturday 2 September I went to the Cross Country Event at Burghley Horse Trials.  Here are some of my photographs.  I have tried to capture both close ups and context.

 

All photos were taken with the X-T2 and the 50-140, except for the shot of the rider and horse in the water facing straight on to the camera, which was taken with the 100-400.

Wow, some nice action here. Great low angle on the first ones :) The backgrounds are interesting, although one could also call them distracting. A few tricks like slightly desaturating them might change the feeling of the images, just for an expt...

Thanks, GB, glad you like them.

 

I included some backgrounds deliberately, as the unique location is part of the experience of being there, but I agree that this can distract from the action.  I think it is good to have both approaches to the scene.

 

Thanks for your suggestion of some editing changes.  I will play around with these.
