Wow! This should have scored better. I've been trying to do something like this with my own dog for months, and haven't quite accomplished it.

Tack sharp, great b/w, perfect composition. Congrats on 12th place, Bob. Btw, now that I've discovered that there's a world out there, I might take you up on that offer ;-)

Many thanks for all the comments.
Well done Melethia for spotting it was me. I think it's fair to say that if there is a whippet in the pic its probably mine ;^)

generally, I like this, but something still does not sit quite right. Maybe too much dead space in the image between the dog and the person. However, I know that with an action shot like this, you get what you get. No posing!

Perfect composition. Love the dog's stop action and expression. Well done.

If I were to wager a guess, I'd say this is TacTZilla's work. Awesome composition, great action capture. Love to know how you do the focus for this type of shot.

the stopped action, the dog at rest/attention, and the trainer are the only focal points - a perfect use of b/w to concentrate the points of interest

Superb action shot. Loads happening in it and it is very effective in B&W as opposed to colour.

Fun shot! Made me chuckle. :) I like your use of DOF to drive my eye to the dog.
