Dieppe has an hippodrome which welcome from June to August many visitors. Local races, but also of the races of the PMU like 'tiercé', animate this very pleasant racecourse. I go there rather regularly, not to play, but to impregnate environment which reigns
there. This photo is made on the arrival of a race in
sulkis, the horse is out of force and sweat covers all its body.
I unfortunately cut the top of the ears and the end of the muzzle, but I like it this photograph I hope that you will like it also ;o)

I just make a white background, resize and frame.

Hi Maryline!
This is a nice picture, just sad that his face is not fully on the photograph. It would be beautiful if his ears and nose were fully visible!
Well done anyway, you caught him from a great angle

saludos Maryline

Yes, the photo is great of the horse, Maryline. You show off his details so well - the veins and his alertness showing in his ears and eyes.
It is a pity about the missing 'bits' but I am impressed with his expression and sleekness. Well done

Hi Maryline

I'm really sorry but due to you not capturing the ears and the end of the horses nose I don't feel that your shot ought to recieve maximum points. (Sorry, just being honest imo) The detail that you have captured however is excellent!

I like a flutter on the gee gees every now and then and I also wish that you'd included the name of this handsome filly.

Thanks for sharing.


bonjour Marylou

jolie portrait de ce chaval qui doit avoir beaucoup de caracter,
ton POV est trés bon et la netteté aussi, le cadrege peut s'améliorer



La superbe netteté nous fait oublier les bouts coupés.
Bon travail pour éliminer le BG.
Bien fait

Bonsoir Maryline,
quel magnifique bête, un vrai atlète, fier, on voit encore l'effort qu'il a dû faire sur ses veines saillantes.
J'aime beaucoup la fierté des pur-sang. Tiens il faudra que j'aille faire un tour à l'hippodrome de Niort un de ses jours. Merci pour l'idée et bravo pour ce cliché
Bonne nuit, bises

Hello Maryline
splendide portrait d'un beau cheval,une netteté parfaite et des beaux détails
belle composition malgré les petits bouts d'oreilles en moins....;
bisous toulousains

hi maryline,
just the sweaty horse in it frame. even with some ears and nose not seen a perfect picture.
regards frans

very sharp picture of that horse
u can see all the details in his skin
very good
its a little same that his face is not fully on the pic

bonjour Maryline
oui la note confirme ce que je pensais en voyant la photo, il vient de se faire un sprint
très belles couleurs et lumière, bonne qualité, dommage en effet pour le cadrage

Ciao Marylou, bel ritratto di questo splendido cavallo, foto nitida e perfetta nei dettagli, splendida la presentazione, brava!
Baci Silvio

Hello Maryline,

Beautiful visual, impressed with the vision of this beautiful specimen, I perfectly see their veins in his face. amazed with his details. the lovely pov good clean background.


Hi Maryline. I quite like the crop regardless of missing bits. The image shows the fine detail that is recognisable in the racehorses world wide. Good colour and nicely presented. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Tamar Tranquillity III’

Just a nice and happy picture,I like it very much!
