    horse wrecks

    would have kept the wrecks thread gon', but was hopn' there are more horse wrecks out you can see she recovered and completed her round with applause...

    I had manually focused on the jump when it all went pear shaped, luckily I was in continuous mode, although they get a little out of focus as the rider rolls away from me

    Good series.
    The problem I have with MF is that I don't see well enough.
    So it takes several rolls forward and back to find the sweet spot, by which time the subject's moved.

    I am in awe of people who can do it like this:
    Scroll down in the videoplaylist to "The Art of Pulling Focus"

    That's showed me why I have trouble, the decouple of the focus ring position from the lens focus in modern Canon EF USM lenses means that rotation angle is not directly related to focus any more.

    Scroll down to the Sports Forum and post your sports pictures !

    Nice action pictures. Now I know why I like this side of the camera and not the other side.

    You know I watch horse racing regularly and such falls aren't that rare actually. Thankfully, in most cases it looks more painful than it is. By the way, I even bet on racings. I read tipstrr review and others before choosing a betting site and then I stake. Even win sometimes.

    No, unfortunately it is REALLY painful. And sometimes a big risk to health too. So this is why I don't bet on horse racing or individual horse riders. Because you must trust their skills too. I prefer football betting and I check results at this site every day. This looks more reliable.
