    Lovely colouring and sense of closeness in racing condition Miles!

    No wonder jockey's end up covered in mud after a race, you've captured the heat of the race really well and very differently than your shot a few days ago.

    This is a great shot that really captures the grit and determination inherent in the sport.

    Interesting choice of toning--I like the way the grass and horse/riders look... but I'm no too crazy about the way the sky came out.

    Thanks for photoblogging.

    Really great shot! The detail is spectacular - like the muscles and veins in the white horse's chest. Wow. I also really like the tones, which I feel somehow give the shot a sense of motion and timelessness at the same time.

    Miles -- you could sell these pictures to a magazine. Honestly.

    Not much to say that hasn't already been said Miles. Really wonderful shot. I especially like the film-like quality you've given this ( or is it film?) In any case I'd like some EXIF please :-)

    Superb. It reminded me of Edgar Degas' lovely horse paintings...

    Exposure information please! I have had a hard time getting this much detail at fast speed with my canon - I'd love to know how you did it!

  • Miles

    Thanks everyone.

    Heather, I took this with the wonderful canon 85mm f1.8 at 1/1000sec and f3.5, ISO was 400. Even at 1/1000 some areas of the image are a little blurry but the lens does a great job at capturing detail, I love it!

    Saw this one on flickr. I like how you desaturated it...

    Now this is interesting. I feel like the horses are about to run me over. I also like the vintage feel of the processing.
