Hello everyone,

First time poster here, though I do skim the home page almost daily. I thought I would finally join and contribute. I don't have the best camera on the market but this is a portrait of my horse. Shot with a Canon 1000D and 18-55. Pretty much as basic as it gets.



Please feel free to comment and critique, I have some pretty tough skin. Particularly how do you like the processing? I bought a new monitor and I think I have it finally calibrated.

**EDIT**

I took the suggestion and tried again with the post processing.

I wouldn't worry about your 1000D. You're picture wouldn't have looked any different if you'd shot it on a 1Dx.

I'd have taken the head collar off before I took the shot. Maybe adjust in levels to produce whiter whites, contrast of pic isn't bad but it's a little grey.

You can see some of my equestrian pics in the forum "Sports" section.

Thank you for the kind words and advice, I'll have to try again in the spring when I fly home. As for the 1000D, it's an upgrade from my 300D so there are some noted improvements that I love. Ideally a 7D would be in my future

Keep shooting - practice as much as you can :) my first dslr was a 450d - I learnt so much on that camera.

Good luck

Shooting a dark subject with a snow background is right up there with the most difficult things to photograph.  A fill flash, if you didn't use it will help deal with the extreme DR.
