Contest/Event: Shooting range

This one was tricky, even though I had this composition in my mind almost from the start of event. Why tricky? I do (and even with extra hours helping trainer during semesters) archery, eh, the modern "olympics" one with recurved bow but I know how it's sensitive about body position. My own eyes hurted when I tried to draw it right :D (And no way to use references unless from competitions which are all the same). Well, did my best :D

Later I will replace this photo with better scan.

Thank you! I was a bit worried if it's going to look alright and... it turned out the best it could I think ^^

You knuckled down on the basics, and you used it to step outside your comfort zone.  That's always a victory.

WHHHHYYYYY are they shooting at the cute plushie??!!
It's too adorable to be shot at.
I love the desert scene and the mountains.
I love the poses for Rosita and Larinne. They are both beautiful babs. :)

Oh no, they are shooting to the wood under the plushie to get it as prize! ^^
Thank you! Thanks to pictures like this I'm slowly getting more comfortable with landscapes and horse+human anathomy :)

Don't worry, that plushie survived! Shooting is meant to aim at wood under the prize you want to win ^^
