Greetings from the Critique Club!

I should have guessed this was one of yours, Ronnie...as others have already noticed, the biceps on her are something else! Frankly I love this shot, I'm surprised it didn't ribbon. The relative softness of the backdrop of rooster tail, coupled with the lines of her body, the flying ponytail, the concentration on her face. Even the knee brace tells its own story, obviously this girl is one not to be easily stopped despite having done something to her knee, probably while she was doing exactly what she is doing right now.

The only thing I don't like is that blue-and-black thing on the line to the left. Even though the towrope obviously continues out of frame, for me that one little thing kind of halts the otherwise nice clean lines here prematurely.

Otherwise a very well-deserved top ten finish and hey, you even beat out a nekkid cyclist with this! ;-)
