Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV

Kim Farlinger and Caprice Vande Brouwer

As I was editing some images this afternoon, this week’s theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV popped into my mind.

Typically, I don’t photograph show jumpers head on, but on this morning at Horse Shows by the Bay the course designer set the triple combination so that it was almost a crime not to shoot it. I could easily position myself so that it appeared as if the rider was guiding her horse into a sea of rails right toward the camera.

When everything was in proper alignment–the photographer, the horse and the three fences–it became a fun, artsy image. Of course, the added challenge is to have all of these elements converge with an attractive, good-jumping horse and a rider who’s looking up and ahead. Thanks to Kim and Caprice for providing me with a favorite show jumping shot in a different point of view!
