It's always hard to get good shots under a arena top on sunny days.

Nice work BlueMax, looks like you have shooting "under a arena top on sunny days" dialed in very good.

Very nice. First one is my favorite; however, I wonder how a horizontal crop would look (same vertical height, but wider to give more room)?

Nice shots! You handled a very tough situation well! Job well done!
These girls are intense! The athleticism is apparent too!

Here you go cropped wider I like the tighter shot you can see the detail of the horse better my 2 cents. The background is so blown out.

I d/l this one and played around with it. To get what I envisioned, you'd have to go to a square crop, so I think your original post was best. Thanks for posting the 2nd, so I could have a play with it.

I love this type of action! It is power and grace together. I'm digging the lady in number 4, to bad the horse wasn't captured as intense as the rider. The first one is my fav. Cool shots.
