A shot I took testing out a new Canon G-16

Like the smoke on the water effect, a different take on the idea, very nice with the narrow field of view keeps the eye on the detail of the subject. What exposure, any other kit, ND filter?
This isn't a critique... but usually if I'm photographing something like this where motion is obvious, I usually compose the shot so the direction they are heading is open rather than where they have been. So I would have the horse and rider to the left of the shot rather than the right.
Is that just a personal preference on my part or was there a specific reason you composed the shot that way that has to do with one of these unspoken rules of photography that I pick up off the streets?
I was thinking the same: it looks like the horse is jumping out of the frame. You might be able to make the shot more intense by cropping it tight on horse and rider in portrait orientation.
