Johan Lundin and his horse Major Tom landing in the water trench after jumping the obstacle during the Nordic Cup in Eventing in Link?ping. Sweden in August 2003. The picture was taken with a C5050 and a Raynox DCR 1850 PRO teleconverter at 1/1000 second with HI-drive and manually preset focus. As the scene was backlit by the sun, I had to over expose by 1 stop in order to capture details of the horse and rider.

Wonderful shot! He looks like he is really enjoying the ride. All eyes are on the subject including the viewer of the photograph.
