Horses from the 2009 Gold Cup

Discussion in 'Other Animals' started by Skittledoo, May 14, 2009.

  1. I wasn't sure whether or not this series was better suited for the sports photography section or animal section. I put it in the sports section, but wondered if it might generate more interest in this section of the forum. There are quite a few photos.

    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.

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

    10) This one is clearly out of focus... but I like the glow it gave the riders

  5. Nice series. I like #8 the best.
    Not a big fan of steeple chase, seen too many nasty accidents, but you captured some great scenery.
