Just stumbled across this image in your portfolio/challenge entries. Beautiful action photo, as someone else said, it's pro-magazine worthy.

One of the best action shots I've seen in a long, long time. I see this at the top of the pile but perhaps will suffer a bit with those that don't care for this genre. I hope not cause I think it ROCKS!
