Thanks for all your comments and scores. Life is pretty busy with three kids. About the only thing I have time to photograph these days is them. It's nice to be able to submit one of those pictures for a contest.

I look at a shot like this and just wonder how anyone in their right mind can score it less than a 7, this is just an absolutely beautiful action shot that works on so many levels. Easily one of the best I've seen on dpc, I think I'm becoming a sucker for B&W...
