Driving the pony pair to win the Dutch National Championship!

Contrary to the previous year (see Full speed), it was overcast and rainy this time.

    Looks like fun :)

    I like the way the horse’s front two legs came out – reminds me of a cartoon, or certain funny scenes in TV shows that exaggerate fast movement. Great capture :)

    Beautiful shot, Lenka. I remember years ago how this was an example I received on one of the videos NYIP sent. This far surpasses their example!

  • You are too kind, Jan! Thank you very much :)
    It was the NYIP course that made me to go out and shoot my first ‘Full speed’, and I couldn’t resist to shoot some more next year. Unfortunately, they haven’t held the competition for the next two years. There will be another one next Sunday but the weather forecast is quite bad. We’ll see…
