Stallions and Storms II by Equus-Photography Stallions and Storms II by Equus-Photography
Name: Stallions & Storms II (Edited)
Taken With: Nikon D300s + Nikkor 70-200 f2.8-3.5
Date: May 7th 2011
Description: My Favourite shot from this weekend action wise. We had a massive hail and thunderstorm right after this series of shots was taken, you can see it moving in in the background. The rings went to a break, and when i saw the lighting in the warmup ring i pounced on the opportunity to take some shots. I Believe this horse is performing a canter pirouette, and was competing in the Prix St. George level, he's absolutely gorgeous!
Added a seventies style action onto it, then played around with colors for over an hour!
Original- Stallions & Storms I

its a base action, plus quite a bit of fiddling with color curves, levels, selective color....its uite a complicated process

thank you! i played a lot with colors and layer settings. there is a base action that i use to warm up highlights, and then i played around manually a lot with it. tbh i can't really remember :s color curves, selective color...not sure what else!

Hello I have a question for you. Do you mind if I use this picture as a reference. I want to upload a new dressage drawing, but need a refresher on certain movements, and this is one of them. Plz?

Canter pirouette, definitely. They both look so light and unphased by that storm. Perfect!!! Submit this to HI's Photo Contest or Dressage Today, I could definitely see them using this, and you could get some money from usage!

thanks :hug: i wish i could, but i techincally do not own all the rights to this picture..or any from this show :( i work for a pro photography firm, so they own the rights, but the owner lets me take a few shots from every show to add to me porfolio/ put up here :)

Bummerrrrrr. Those are some odd rules, but then again I've only done freelance work, never for a firm. Does make sense, though.

Gorgeous shot! Perfect DOF, decent lighting and you caught them in just the right moment in their canter pirouette.

The only thing I'm not a big fan of is all the editing... I would have liked to see what the original looked like!
