2009 Gold Cup Steeplechase Horse Races (Lots of photos)

I don't get to sign onto Nikon Cafe nearly as much as I'd like to sadly... I'm trying to sign on as much as I can find time for. Anyways... I just recently shot a few photos from the sidelines of the 2009 Gold Cup and wanted to share them with you. Critiques are welcome if you'd like to. This was just a "for fun" photo shoot. I had my camera on me and I haven't really done ANY action photos so I wanted to give it a shot. I used my Nikon D60 and 70-300mm lens for these photos. The toughest part was zooming in or out on the shot and focusing while still keeping the subject in the frame since these horses were pretty quick.

There are a ton of photos just as an FYI. I wasn't sure whether to put this in the animal's forum or sports... but since Steeplechase is essentially a sport I chose the sports forum.

1) this one is slightly out of focus. I still really like it though.
