Taken at the Cardboard Cup Derby in Helena, Montana at Spring Meadow Lake. I liked how excited David (front of boat) and how scared looking Micheal (one of our clients) was in the back of the boat. Processing done in PS...very little, slight change with adjustment layer, preped for the web after border was added.

Good Snapshot for your memories...Not much for the "Best of" challenge. Will most likely score poorly here. The lighting is a little off, orange hue on the faces. May have wanted to pull back a bit and get the entire boat in the image. Also, if they were competing against another cup, may have wanted the dynamic of how close the race was. Good Luck. 4.

looks like allot of fun but not allot of interest in the photo for me. I wish the focus was better on the guy on the left.
