This is a great shot. I have shot my sons AFL footy match and I know how hard it is to get action shots just right but you captured it well here.

Excellent capture. With the dog completely airborne, this cropped real tight would likely make another great image as well.

Awesome result Sue, and so so close to a much deserved ribbon.....
This is a really great photo, and you should be so proud, because I am very proud of you dear friend.....
Just noticed that not only the dog, but also the person have no feet/paws on the ground..... Great stuff.....

Wow - talk about concentration!!

Great action shot of the dog. The composition could be strengthened a little, and the runner is a bit distracting - maybe he could be cropped off.

Nice action, good focus.

Great timing and focus. Exposure really nice as well. i wish you had cropped out the person on the right as its a bit distracting.

crop out the handler for more impact
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2007 05:30:44 PM
Good stopping of motion with the dog and person. I think the ring is overexposed though.

Great shot, pin shart focus on the eyes, it looks like it flying.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 03:15:32 AM
Ok gotta be honest I was struggling a bit as to whether this was a sport or not...Then I just though to hell with it, its a magnificent photo filled with action and vitality...Possibly would have prefered the crop to have lost the person on the right, but even as it is ...9

Great photo, might work even better if person to the right was cropped out.
