    A few from Mothers Day in Miles City, Montana. We always spend the day betting on the ponies and taking photos. Feedback welcome and appreciated.

    Please click the enlarge photo bar. They turn to crap when compressed. LOL

    I like the second two, but a little higher shutter speed would have been nice.

    THanks Hooligan, and I agree. I was shooting mid-track all day in aperture priority with the 70-200. Then I mounted the 600mm and shot down the track, but obviously I didn't have as much light so the shutter speed fell off more than I had wanted. Chalk another one up to user error. LOL

    I love the two front-ons, the movement in the legs of the horse and the arms of the jockey really add feeling and movement to the pics, also the slightly blurred spray of dirt coming up from the horse. I normally would have agreed with Hooligan Dan, but in this case I think you really created some great shots :)

    Only thing I might say about the first shot is it could benefit from a bit more space ahead of the horses, to give them somewhere to go, plus there are some borderline blown highlights. But other than that it is also a superb shot, sharp and with vibrant, well balanced colours :)

    and to think what they went through to prove at one moment all 4 of the horses feet would be off the ground... I wish I could recall the guys name who used 10+ cameras to prove that! haha you have done it here with one simple picture. I wish I listened a little more to the history part of photography! GREAT pictures tho!

    Nice shots of my favourite subject, i like the movement in 2 and 3. The 600mm would be great for when i start shooting cricket

    Looks like these guys have already got everything covered, but I would just like to add that these are really fun to look at. Love how you captured the wonderful detail and color in the horses' coats. I really get the sense of energy and motion in these. Jockey in #2 and 3 looks like he means business. Keep posting photos, I love looking at your work.
