'Winners & Losers'

A composite of two separate images, both taken @ Keeneland horse racetrack in Lexington, Ky. I thought the two blended well together. Your thoughts ?

I agree with Frank that the horses may need their track leveled. But that is easy stuff the hard stuff is great, the woman’s expression is priceless and it was a sr
Trove of genius to combine these two shots.

Thanks Frank !!! You are absolutely correct. You would think by now I would have corrected my own habits of the lean behind the camera. I suppose that will be a trait I will always have a battle with. Lets see if this one is any better.

Thanks Minnie !!! I agree and made the corrects. I cannot figure out one, how I keep shooting with a lean and two, how I miss it in post. Maybe some day I'll lean the other direction some, because it seems to be the same side I battle with.

I have a few different, but yet similar expressions of her and it was rather hard for me to pick and choose.

Art work nicely done Dave and to you usual high standard.
The one sided lean with the camera is something I have to contend with... :)
Horses layer. Suggest you desaturate slightly to blend in with the man and woman. Your thoughts?
Have fun;

Thanks Ed, the slight desaturation is a very good possibility and I never gave it any thought until you mentioned it.

A very pleasant shot. Whimsical. Guess the lady didn't have a horse in that race. Matt
