Wow nice picture This is nothing like horse raceing. More dangerest. I love looking at all the pictures on BP web site. I doen't travel I have been to the states only once which was to Wild Wood NJ. Looking at all the pictures makes me see how wonderful the world is not just all the bad on the news. #3942968

Namaskar, Jimmy. This is a great action shot. I would like to see it saturated more, and I would clone out the spot in the sky at screen center.

Thanks Heather ! Namaskar Steve ! you are welcome !

The spots you see in the sky are the same as you see near the hooves of these animals, I mean to say these are the pieces of wet earth, dug by the thundering hooves of the racing animals which are seen flying here and there in the scene . since it was a part as well as the by-product of the whole event, I chose not to remove it from the photo !

I assumed you used a zoom on this? A bit too close to danger for me. But I absolutely love everything about this! (In a nice way.) #3961191
