what an intense shot!I love the DOF here, the fact that everything behind is blurry,
the tight cropping.

Wow! It's a very nice shot.
Clear, sharp, well framed. You froze the mouvement perfectly...

The carriage stands out magnificently. Il is perfectlty isolated by this limited DOF, and it is as sharp as can be. The colours are vivid. Great capture.

Very nice picture and if I am not wrong, you have use the Gaussian blur extensively on the orginal. It is a bit unsettling for me as I felt that it is a bit surreal. Maybe a bit less blurring? Still a very nice picture.

Awesome capture. the emotion and work of the jockey and look in the horses face make me feel like I'm there. I agree with Thien though, the intense blurring sets the horse and rider a bit too far forward, almost like a paste-up, and some of the smudge lines are pretty apparent.
Short of the handwork, the photo is awesome.

Your capture is superb and the team is perfectly homogene. Your post-work is a great idea and very convincing in terms of putting your subject in 3D. Was it though, necessary to push it so far. The background was not that disturbing to me. Even if some artefacts are quite noticeable on the edges, your shot remains a beautiful movement capture.

great composition, beautiful colour and sharpness. I like the blurred background, love the scattered dirt, but you need to get the selection edges even better

Indeed one of your best in your beginning gallery, the light on the horse and the driver sparkling and sharp towards the blurred background.
