Beautiful photo. I was hoping to take pics like this with my 3800, but have been unable to as of yet. Is there any communities, or forrums out there specifically for FujiFilm FinePix 3800 owners? Ive never come close to a shudder speed of 1/750 with my 3800 under any circumstances. Thanks.

a bright shot, and maybe (maybe!) just a touch oversharp, but I could be wrong about that. I like the composition a lot though, especially the inclusion of the sign which is mimicked by the pose of the horses! 10

Nice sports capture! 9

Nice crop. Like to see a little more of the left horses' tail. The action (focus) and lighting is perfect. Good job!

Capture (timing), composition and focus are gorgeous. The inclusion of the (busy) background is a little distracting (could have been panned at shigh shutter speed?). The image is also precariously close to being oversharpened. Still... a great moment well captured.
