I love the fact that you will turn your camera to pretty well any subject and get a professional, quality image - this is as involving an image as I've seen of a sport that generally leaves me cold! I think it's the fact that we can see one rider's face, but the motion blur of the other rider's whip - that conveys the tension between the two .

Thanks everyone for your very kind comments - sorry if I'm starting to bore you all though, but be warned, I can't wait to give it another go, learned a lot from the last shoot and will try out some different ideas I have in mind next time !
