Excellent action shot! Wonderful capture

Behind The Lens

Location
Ranger, North Carolina
Time
Late afternoon.
Lighting
The sun was coming in at about a 45 degree angle.
Equipment
I used the Nikkor 70-300 mm lens on my Nikon D7100 DSLR
Inspiration
My wife an I read that there would be a barrel racing event with local competitors in Ranger, North Carolina, about 10 miles West of Murphy, NC.
Editing
I used Photoshop CS6 to make minor adjustments to the image, cropping and sharpening. No other adjustments were made.
In my camera bag
I normally carry a 50 mm Nikkor macro lens, a 18-140 mm Nikkor zoom lens, an extra battery, and a polarizing filter in my bag.
Feedback
I used manual settings on my camera, in this case 1000 sec exposure at f 8. I also set my camera to auto ISO at a 100 to 1600 range.. This shot was hand-held so I used the VR setting on my lens. I tried to make several rapid-fire shutter bursts as the riders rounded the barrels.
