Shutter speed can sometimes be awkward to work with, especially at a race like this as you don’t get many chances to create the perfect photograph, but this image is spot on. The motion of the horses has been frozen whilst the crowd is blurred, allowing you to look at the most important thing in the frame.
I saw this work recently on the news and thought how fantastic it was. This photograph has done it such justice and has represented the sculptures perfectly with the beautiful colours and reflections.
This photo was one of my favourites this week due to the story behind it. I believe that when pictures have a meaning/story behind them, especially as touching as this, it makes the photo ten times more interesting.
