      I think this is a very nice picture, I think however that a straight horizon would look better.

      Amazingly sharp capture - this is a difficult thing to do. I would have preferred, however, some kind of motion blur in the background - this would give a sensation of movement - the absolute sharpness of this is actually a slight negative in this case.

      The sloping horizon makes it look a little weird although does help to suggest movement. If you could have frames this as a landscape shot and gotten a lower wantage point, this would be amazing - can you go back next weekend and have another go??? If you could have the subjects at the left side of a landscape frame and show the beach, birds and sea in the background you would have it. Better still, the same shot with the horse at the edge of the waves and capture some splashing water too...

      The strong lines in this are distracting from the subject. Very nice clear capture. However it does not move me.

      Great potential, needs some rotation. Would suggest if opportunity comes again, dropping to one knee, and bringing the water more in line with the rider and horse.

      lovely sense of motion, and clarity. the composition needs work, and of course straightening will be good.

      Great job in freezing the moment. I'd agree totally with Mark's and MiRea's advice about compostion in the future. But well done.

      The top part of the frame is wasted, because it has nothing to do with the horse, and the birds are a distraction. The horse is fine. Maybe make a bit more o fthe reflection on the wet sand with a crop

      Nice moment, possibly more effective from a lower angle with the sea aqurealy in the background.
