TOPIC: Lead Image
For the Polo Story:
An image similar to this one (or this one maybe; I do think there are stronger/different ones that could work as well) could possibly be my lead image. The rider in the middle is also my primary source for the story.
There is a lot of action in the image, it's clear the horses are moving pretty fast. The mallets in the air and the look of concentration on the riders' faces also add some intensity to the scene. The horizon is uneven, but I would leave it as is because I like that it shows they are moving uphill.
For the Saddle-Seat & Driving Story:
I think the power/movement in this photo is what I am looking for in a good lead image. There are a few photos similar to this one with better backgrounds that could also be the lead image.
