What was I thinking?

dithot-2008-0670 Sunday morning just outside of camp the riders were judged on the teams ability to cross branches in the trail.  Observing were seven judges and ride staff plus one slightly daft photographer.

 

First, it was too dark for my D200 to operate at a shutter speed fast enough to freeze the action.  Second it was way too crowded.  But as I was stuck in the rut of getting ‘full body shots‘ (because someone had complained about not seeing the horses hoofs.)  Not only did I waste an opportunity, I also did not have the good sense to press the delete button in post.  Some of these made it to the web site where all the riders could see my crappy work.

The NATRC region 4 bunch are the nicest teachers I could hope for and not one said they looked bad, they just ignored them and found others that looked okay.  (Thanks folks but next time feel free to kick me in the behind!) Lesson learned.
