anonymous A. 10/31/2005 2:15:59 AM

Well, K, I thought this was outstanding; then I looked through your gallery and found that, by your standards, it is no more than good!

If you need a fan, count me in.

Nemil B. Chabebe 10/31/2005 9:01:21 PM

I think you and your camera are faster than the dog. This is an amazing shot, I have tried with more than 14 different setting, no luck for me. I was reading a book of John Hedgecoe, he got some amazing shots. I just love this one....... #2020663

Kelly Abernathy 11/1/2005 9:42:08 AM

Thanks Nemil! :) I was using a couple of different settings during this race, depending on how close they were to me and how fast they were running. But I have a few where I wasn't fast enough and they ran out of the frame too. :D Good luck with your shooting! -K

Laura Clay-Ballard 11/3/2005 4:18:43 PM

Robin Nichols 11/25/2005 10:29:47 PM

You could shoot all day long and not come close to a result like this - on the other hand you could do it in just a few frames.

It all hangs in your experience and knowledge of the medium - and you clearly have heaps of both. Well done! #2120952

Bea. Anderson 11/26/2005 12:30:40 AM

Well done. This is a super photo, truly depicting Greyhound speed. I have 3 adopted retired Greyhounds, and I'm still trying to come up with a shot like that. They move too fast. Bea. #2121110

I ran across a field trial for coursing the other day, so I thought I'd practice my panning shots there. Boy, were these dogs fast!
