There are a few problems with this horse portrait submitted by Jaime Hunt. Firstly, the horse is not sharp. You should always make sure a subject's eyes are in focus. Secondly, the crop is a little tight. A more vertical crop may have been a better choice. Thirdly, the exposure is off. The photo was shot at ISO 400 and a shutter speed of 1/1600. When shooting in bright daylight you should try shooting at the lowest ISO possible to avoid noise in the shadows. I would have liked to see detail in the sky instead of complete white.
