Jodie Clineschmidt of Peerkiomenville, Pa., won third place in the Action category with this photo of Will Coleman competing in the Kentucky Three-Day Event.
She took the photo with a Nikon D 750 camera.
"I belong to the Upper Merion Camera Club," said Clineschmidt. "You learn a lot about taking photographs at the club. Things like composition, etc.
Clineschmidt got this wonderful full face-on photo despite not having a photographer's pinny at Kentucky, as one has to be assigned by a recognized media to be allowed into the space saved for the best views of the fences.
"You have to be lucky," said Clineschmidt, but it took more than luck to get this photo, as she used the things she had learned at her club to arrange the composition of this photo.
