Hi Bojan, Congratulations on your win with this beautiful shot.

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in Zagreb Hippodrome, during the race.
Time
Summertime, middle of the day.
Lighting
It was a hot, dry day so the dust was a problem for the riders. For me, it was great because the light was showing the dust nicely.
Equipment
CANON EOS 300D, EF 70-300, handheld.
Inspiration
I enjoy the races and love horses.
Editing
Converted to B&W, increased the contrast a bit.
In my camera bag
Camera, EF 100 macro, EF 70-300, EFS 10-22, EF 50, mini tripod.
Feedback
The key for this one is point of view. I took this shot as they were coming out of the corner and coming straight at me. Long lens is a must.
