    when we visited arley at weekend we could see the arley horse trials going on in the next field, but we could not access it, so i took some shots from about 150yds away, but with being on a lower level ground i could'nt get high enough above the grass to eliminate it, ahh well! thanks for looking.

    Grass or no grass ... you managed to get so close to things (by extending your tele to the max, I assume) that we are "right there". The first is absolutely fascinating with all the action of both horses, the whip, and the drivers. I love the expressions on the faces of the drivers!

    Perfectly well focused! Camera held very still - at how many mm? WOW. :thumbsup:

    Is the grass really as yellow?

    Dave I agree with Raymond, that first shot is a real beauty.

    wow absolutely thanks for your great comments, Lafoto, Raymond, and peter, you have made my day!
    Lafoto, yes you are right if my tele came out any more i would need a rest to put it on, i had to lean on a post to hold it steady, and the grass is a bit sun scorched in that field, hence the tone, thanks again.

    I actually think the grass the in foreground lends something to the first shot. Just my opinion.
