  #221 Long Exposure
Entry 5 of 11
   
 
Birdsville races       ©2019 babysister
Panasonic DMC-TZ80       4th place, 102 points
1/40s, f8, ISO 100, ?, Shutter Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Changed to B&W. Used histogram to get more detail in the blacks. Sharpened.       Extra Info: Birsdville is a town of 100 residents in outback Queensland. Once a year they hold a day of horse racing on a very dusty dirt track. The population soars to 8000 on that day with some doing the long trek by car but most arriving by light plane. The airport is packed with light planes, and the clothes worn are extraordinary.
The front horses are the only ones with a clear view of the track as the dust is raised by the hooves.

    This was my #1 by a mile (or is that a lap??). Amazing image.

    Thank all of you for your comments. I was on a photographic light plane tour for 3 days and our brief at the races was to photograph the people and atmosphere. I did that but could not resist the opportunity to get the long exposure photo as well. It was all hand held.

    Nice long exposure horse shot. And the winner by a blur is...?

    Extraordinary! The blending together of the front two horses creates an alien beast.
Birdsville is legendary to all Australians (even those of us who have never been there.) Top 2.

    I like the effect you have achieved. I might have been tempted to bring the rear horse closer to the next horse and include his rear foot if you had it on the original photo. GL.

    This makes me feel like I am watching these hoses in the dusty environment you refer to. A wonderfully interesting piece of art; so much more to enjoy than just the usual shot done with a fast shutter.

    Great capture. The elongated crop really adds to the sense of movement and the choice of B&W is right on.

    This conveys a sense of movement beautifully.

    I absolutely LOVE this image. It's brilliant, perfect level of blur. I'm so jealous.

    Nicely done - really captures the energy of the horses and the race. Like the composition and "panoramic" presentation.

    There is something about this image that catches my eye and won't let go. I like subject matter and the sense of motion. Perhaps it is the chaos of the scene. Well done.
