Spring has finally sprung here in Nebraska. It was a great day at the local track.

Thanks for taking time to comment. It looks to me like the horse is looking at my remote camera in the second.

Loving #1 Brad.
Lovely shot. it really shows the power of the horses.
I know this may sound dumb!, (I have this internal struggle myself with remotes?), but could you have used a slightly less wide lens to exclude the overhanging barrier?, or even a bracket on it to use it as the anchor?. I like the image, (great exposure), but find the railings too distracting!

EXCELLENT! Both images are superb! Love the unique perspective of the second ! The people and building across the track add a lot of interest to the image! I don't find the overhang that distracting....more interesting than distracting. It caused me to study the image even longer to theorize on how you got the shot! LOL! And with a 600mm no less!

I can't help myself, but everytime I read the threadtitle I'm reminded of the Queen record...

Very well photographed

I've been working with track officials a lot this year. I'm shooting a feature story about the culture of the track. I have a few more horse photos on my shot list that hopefully I can capture in the next weeks and then turning the camera on the people side of racing. It's a lot of work but a lot of fun.

I agree with Karen. The perspective on #2 is very intriguing and complementary to the scene.
