wow, this is great!

I like the composition and the colors here. Bokeh could be a touch stronger, but still works nicely.

Nice premise

What a great shot. I'm guessing you shot this at some difference so DOF would have been hard to control. That said, with all of the detail and colors in the background if you could have found a way to decrease the DOF a little it would have made your subject stand out much more.

Still this is a great example of Triumph. Well done.

Politically compelling image for our time. Probably the best subject inthe challenge!!!

This win was a great triumph for Iraq, nice shot.

Great shot, really nails the challenge. Might have cropped him a bit further into the frame but whatever, the raw emotion coming through this scene is just great. 9.

8-) amazing!

This shot drips of "Triumph." Nice job.

Very cool composition. Expresses the theme very well. I like the leading lines created by the fence and the fact that it creates a nice seperation between the main subject and the cheering crowd and the DOF is spot on. Very well done. 10

Great shot, I love the emotion in this one. This is truely triumph.

Great moment - I can almost feel the roar of the crowd! The composition is so much stronger for including the outstretched arms to the right. Good work.

I like it! It would be nearly perfect if you used a high aperature to get more of the fans in focus looking at their hero

Nice capture - Like the feeling of this - Maybe a shallower DOF field could have really made the player pop out from the crowd that is a little distracting as they are very busy and not out of focus enough.

nice level crop, nice colours, tad noisy...gl 8
