I've photographed two dead heats (equal winners) at the races in the time I've been behind the camera, this is the most recent one. The two winners were the horse with the black blinkers on, and the one in the middle with the yellow bridle. It was the first time in the history of that race it has been dead-heated.

I kept the crop on this image quite tight because the finish was so close, and the expressions of everyone involved are so dynamic. I wanted the sense of the image seeming larger than life and rather frantic because of the activity, so I also upped the vibrancy of the colours a touch. Sometimes adding a bit more colour to an image can really make it pop and give it a wow factor.
