Hi. Congrats for your placement.
I have a technical question about the photo, if you don't mind:
With the settings as stated, how did you compensate for the overexposure? Did you used any nd filter? 1/20 of a second at f/5.0 is a lot of light... While shooting my attempts with similar settings I was forced to use a 6x nd filter and it was still too much exposed...

I like this photo. The horse really stands out from the background, and there's nothing overly distracting in the shot. You can really see the movement here. If I were trying to improve this shot, first I would crop it asymetrically so that I could see more of the area of where the horse was running to and less behind him. The horse's face is still just a bit fuzzy around the edges. I might have bumped up the shutter speed just a tad to see if it improved the focus on his face.
