Incredible photograph! I had picked this to ribbon, and was one of my top two picks. Congratulation on your seventh place finish.

Great! Love what you did with the lighting/shadows… and how you captured the beauty of the animal in motion! The only minor comment – the bright wall in the back is a bit too bright in my opinion. Either way – wishing your entry a great finish!

Great monochromatic picture. You can feel the action as you capture the decisive moment.

Nice side light to bring interesting shadows. I'm not so sure about the background element on the right, it wants to draw my eye.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2008 08:41:56 PM
Outstanding, love the sense of motion you captured here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2008 05:20:15 PM
nice use of negative space
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think you've done an excellent job. It looks like low lighting with motion but you've captured a very sharp image - well done in my book. It's a 10 of course. I think it should be the top winner but I really think two other photos will beat it because they are more colorful. Yours should be placed ahead due to difficulty. Anyway, good luck to you & Rio - I think he will finish 3rd but he's tops to me!

Quite like the darkness and energy here. Just the right amount of light to showcase the horse and form, and the bit o' dust kicked up.

Wow. I know how hard it is to get a sharp clear capture of a fast mover in low light!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Oh, I approve, very nice, I know how hard it is to get proper lighting in stable conditions, I'm impressed.

Beautiful capture. I hope folks will like the lighting. I got a lot of comments on the 'dark' ones I've entered. This works well here. I would have sharpened the eye a bit in PP...

A daring contrasted image, works very well. The feeling of motion and speed is impressive, and the image is also well balanced and composed.
