well, I'm not so happy with the quality of this, the light wasn't that good and i think it looks a little grainy, but i liked the sequence too much not to submit it. this jump looked very imposing as a spectator at the bottom of the hill, but these horses made nothing of it and just bounced up it effortlessly! i have a couple more jumping sequence pics to put up when i get round to photoshopping them, a couple of water jumps and one of a bank.

taken at Blair Castle horse trials, Perthshire, Scotland

thanks, glad you like it, I'll have to try and get out to some more horsey events this summer and take more photos! :)

again nice work! I might have to try this myself, as I've taken XC shots in burst mode, but never had the patience to try this.

you should! it really doesn't take that long, i think it took me about half an hour maybe, and if you have some basic photoshop knowledge it should be no problem! :)

Yup, lots of PS experience... just not a lot of time to work on this sort of project!

that is so cool... how do you do that, just take a series of shots and paste them together like a panorama?

yeah my camera has a burst mode, where you hold down the shutter button for a couple of seconds and it takes photos one after the other. then it's pretty easy to photoshop it together, as the image has the same background as the camera shouldn't have moved too much in the couple of seconds in which you took the pics, so even the 1st pic, where the horse is at the bottom of the bank, that whole photo covers the entire background, if that makes sense?

ahh I see... so PS has a fancy way of stitching these photos together? I still haven't explored the full potential of the program.

ahh I see. I thought there was some magic button or way of doing it... all the more impressive you pasted them together yourself so seamlessly!
