Just like being there! I really like this shot -- thought it would end up over 6. Maybe because it was seen before the challenge?

Great teamwork shot that didn't lend itself to brief examination in this huge challenge. And what access! :-) Love the low light motion blur.

ah, I remember seeing this before either in your profile or in the forums. what struck me then and still strikes me now is how very much in medias res this feels. the wheel rolling through the frame in the LR really makes the photo and makes me feel like I'm actually there.

This is my idea of flawless too! Only 11 more days......good shot. 8

Good use of shutter speed to show action. The photo is too grainy, I'm sure because your ISO is high for this low light shot.

I like the slight movement of the people, gives it a tad more action than if not. However, the lighting is pretty bad but I donĀ“t suppose there was anything you could do about that, flood lighting, am I right? Anyway, nice work, could see this in a newspaper.

This is quite a capture. I can really imagine how fast these guys are moving. I like the POV quite a bit. That guy rolling the tire across the frame really grabs me and conveys the excitement of his job. I like the view just off frame of the other tire guy.
