    Umm...it looks like come of the photos in that album are stolen?? One even says "Not Purchased" all over it. Do you have no shame?! You are stealing a product from photographers, like taking a shirt from a department store without paying for it. It's stuff like this that makes people who actually buy their photos have to pay to see their proofs . I love the photographers in my area and want to keep them coming back to events.

    The both of you look like a great team!!! The only thing I would really do is put your stirrups up a hole or 2 and get your weight down in your heal and just a bit flatter in the top part of your back (which I know I have a problem with as I have a stiff back.) But other than that, looks good! Good luck for the upcoming season!

    Exactly. And I'm of the opinion that participating in a critiquing exercise of a stolen photo is not kosher - it's just encouraging others to do the same.

    Default Digital Images...

    You can buy low res digital images (to use on FB, email friends, etc.) from this photographer for only $45, which I think is a good deal.

    Agree with the buying the photos things- Its the only way we are ever going to keep the photographers coming to our events! So, buy them if you're gonna use them!!! Other than that- ride w/out stirrups/ strengthen your leg and get your weight in your heals.

    I agree with CatchMeIfUCan. Buy them or delete them!

    Or if you want COTH to critique them without buying, just link to photog's website. That's not stealing, just sharing. You should definitly take them off FB, though..........
