Foggy early morning training for this pacer. He was very watchful as I was pointing a long black thing in his direction.

I’m a Sydney based photographer. Photographic interests are the outdoors, people, action, HDR and creative works as well as pretty much everything I guess.
Great capture Ian..
Hi Julie, something a bit different, thanks !!

Excellent work mate.
G’day Waz maybe this subject won’t have very general appeal but I enjoyed the challenge to get an interesting shot for myself. Cheers mate !!!
Great expression and clarity for an action shot. I really like the composition and toning.
Thanks mate, I’m very pleased with how it turned out !!
yes! … both horse and rider it appears … great shot, tonal range, comp and subject matter Ian … love the lean of the whole thing into the wind, as it were. Top shot m’dear :)
Appreciate your comment on this Caz as it is one that many would overlook. So pleased you like it :)))))))
Great focus and action.
Thanks Joe !!
Great capture Ian
Thanks for taking a look and glad you like it !!
Great action shot – perfect timing to show off the pacer’s movement.
Glad you like it Enivea, thanks :))
The bloke doesn’t look too happy! LOL Pacer is pacing without hobbles. Must be a natural…Wonderful image!
The driver was trying to keep the horse under control as it was more worried about me than what it was doing !! Thanks !!
Wow, this is a brilliant shot Ian! I just love this so much!
Thanks Maree, this image won 2nd place in mono prints at Newcastle National recently but gets mixed reception elsewhere. It’s all so subjective isn’t it ??
Congratulations on your placing Ian.You’re right it’s very subjective… I got a street shot knocked back earlier on from a group that wants to look at beautiful images from our country. I think it is beautiful but obviously the person moderating didn’t. Street stuff must be an acquired taste. :)No point getting upset…I just shake my head at their lack of vision and get on with it LOL
I bet the guy in this shot loved the result.
This was taken very early morning when they were out training. I specifically wanted to get something in the fog and will try again in winter with colder air and more steam coming from nostrils etc. I haven’t seen this guy again and must go back and offer him a print. Your candid street stuff is very good and as you say, no point getting upset about someone else’s opinion. Now if there were a lot of people with the same opinion, then I would take note. I enter in a lot of external comps and have come across this quite often. Mind you some images have general appeal and do well anywhere. Oh well on with the show !!!! LOL
