    Ohhh I wish you could've gotten all the shadow in #4. That is a great pose, especially with the bit of turf flying off her back hoof.

    Apart from the power poles in the bg, I really like #5.

    Thanks for sharing.

    What beautiful horses!!! The black one looks young- which could very well explain the incredible buck!!! Awesome capture!!

    Great shots! I really need to bring my camera to the stable sometime.. although most of the horses- USUALLY- are eating, not playing around. lol

    Sirsteezo - Thank you! She's quite playful!

    Kundalini - I wasn't expecting her to buck so high/at all... so I definately wasn't thinking of her shadow! LOL worked out nicely for me tho... caught me by surprise! as for 5 - that's what happens when the pictures are taken in your front yard... light poles and wires.. booo..

    noescape - thanks!! Molly (black one) is only 8 months, so I can usually get some action shots out of her. As for the other horse, when I take a halter out he runs away. Frustrating.. but makes for a nice picture!

    Question... would it be possible to take those power lines and that house out of the background of #5? I've just decided to use the picture for something.

    I have photoshop, but I definately suck at it... any thoughts? :blushing:

    Here ya go. I used the clone tool to remove the power lines etc, then changed the brightness and contrast a little... then I used the dodge brush to brighten the face and white markings just a little bit. Let me know what you think.

    2 and 3 are awesome, great sense of movement in the subject and background.
