About the Image(s)

A field trip from our camera club, we had never been to a racetrack before so it was quite fun. I played between stopping the action and panning. My panning was not perfect but I liked the semi-motion that was caught. Pretty much straight from the camera with some cropping, a little work in ACR. Nikon D750, 28 - 300 Nikkor lens..

Hi Joan, I think that you have caught the essence of the racing horses, there is a wonderful feeling of motion. I wonder if cropping it a bit to a more panorama-like format would increase the sense of speed even more? I think that the lighter patch on the track (from the white socks of the horse?) and close to the right edge may draw the eye a bit. I tried to darken the lower one slightly and clone off the other. What do you think?   Posted: 06/13/2021 13:46:38

Hi Joan,
Good job of creating the sense of motion. I also like the layers of colors. Very successful.   Posted: 06/17/2021 15:36:47
