CHIO Eindhoven 2011 Jumping

For all of you who like to see horses and or horse jumping here is my annual collection from this year CHIO Eindhoven. This time I tried to get some more close up shots to show the expression on the faces. Whenever I see some expression in a sports foto it gets extra points.
Hope you like them. These pictures are linked via Dropbox, so I hope you will be able to see them. Please report if they are not visible.

Thnx frogfish, I've replaced the pictures with links, so they should show up now.
I was trying to get shots like #4, but not fully satisfied with the result. Now that I know you like them I'm gone put some more effort to get these kind of shots next time.

Very sharp. 2 and 4 are my favorites - really like that detail in both the horse and rider.

Thnx for the compliments dave.
Sanmat, your comments just shows me I should try to get more and better close up shots next time I shoot at the CHIO. I was not sure if these kind of shots would be as attractive compared to the more or less standard jumping shots.

Nice action shots w/ perfect sharpness! Photographically, I would probably say that there should be less DOF, though.

Thnx Adam. I agree that a little less DOF would make it better, but since I wanted the horses sharp from head to tail I played safe and used F6.3. Maby I could go back to F5.6 or even F4 and see how it works out.
