No, it's not the classic Marx Bros. movie. I spent today in the cold and wind to do some shots at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas. Given the lousy lighting I think I still pulled out some decent shots.

The first one stuck out to me because of the colors. Plus, I love seeing the musculature of these gorgeous animals.

The last two represent my first attempt at dragging my shutter and panning the subject in order to get the motion blur in the background. They were shot at 1/50 and f/20. Let me know what you think.

This looks like alot of fun to shoot, so sorry to hear that the weather wasn't nicer. Your results aren't bad considering it wasn't a sunny day, but I do like seeing the mud splashing upward.

Dang! Note to self.... when downsizing for the web in CS2, use bicubic sharper. These are SO much sharper at full res.

Thanks for the feedback, guys!
