Great series here. Nice mix of stop-action and motion blur and different angles rather than 5 versions of the same shot. So, well done.

Image 1: strong image - I like the angle and just enough motion blur - wonderful background.

Image 2: Love the composition but front rider is a bit outside focus plane - it's just a bit awkward with focus on the 2nd rider here. Just a bit unusual to highlight the 2nd rider in a shot with this type of framing.

Image 3: I can see opinions going either way. For my personal tastes there's just a bit too much blur here. But I can certainly appreaciate the ability to capture a single rider frozen .

Image 4: Fantastic. Just as powerful as image 1. Well done

Image 5: a tad soft - for this type of angle, I think photo 1 works better. Framing this tight, any softness shows through. Compared to image 1 this one looks softer. Maybe back off the crop a little bit.

Still, this is an awesome series. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent capture on both the panned images as well as the stop action images. I like #3...it conveys a special sense of motion to me. I would pass on #5 due to the uneven lighting (bottom of the image is in the shadow); # 1 works much better.

Great series!

Jehan the sun was going down for the last race. I was trying to just capture the jockeys and the horses heads in the last bit of light.
Sometimes the shot works other times it doesn't
