Horse Power full On

By altosaxman
Wanted to get near the finishing line to get the best shot of the horse and jockeys working hard. However the pro snapper wasn't happy with me being there so I had to pretend to walk away further up the track. I dashed back to the fence as they got near so had to make do and mend. Interested in any thoughts on composition etc. Thanks

Your shutter-speed priority has given you too large a depth of field by forcing you down to f5.6, even though you're only at 235mm. Your horizon needs levelling, as indicated by the non-vertical floodlight poles. Also, the slightly-encroaching rail is a bit of a distraction.
That's all the negatives I have.
Positives? It's well composed and has caught the moment very well. With a few tweaks I'm sure the next ones will be even better. Smile
