Okay, I didn't see this one while I was voting. This is the second time I see this happen. Not to complain about the winner b/c she did a good job. But honestly the photo was a bit cheesy. I guess that's what the people on this site like, b/c time after time the cheesiest most cliche image wins.

Your photo is PERFECT, I think i have only given out one 10 so far. I give you a 10 gladly. The movement, the expression, the compostion, the DOF, all on point. You colored the shirt which was a perfect choice. It draws attention to the exact point of interest and compliments the image perfectly. you did a wonderful job, really. In my mind your photo took the blue ribbon. I give up on this site and the consistent voting for cheesy and cliche images. Congrats.

I get the idea of the title, but the photo just doesn't work.

Very creative & original

great shot but too dark, there is a lot of solid black

Another great action shot. This one should be in the top ten.

This is one shot that really grabbed my attention. Good choice and well done.

My #1 pick for this challenge. Excellent capture and love the dark tones of this shot. Your timing is exquisite, capturing this athlete in a very interesting moment. Your choice of crop also compliments the shot very nicely.

Wow I can hear the sound of her hitting the dirt. If I close my eyes I can see her running up to the starting line, hear her gasp as her muscles launch her up into the air, see her stretch for the distance, then...

Great composition & choice for this challenge!
Nice job on acheiving the photographic-quality B & W portion!

i love it ... crisp ... 10

Great subject and job with the desaturation. Possibly some dodging of the sand, or burning of the background may have helped create a little more contrast and emphasis on the subject. Nice photo nonetheless..... 7

I like the tonal qualities of this image and also the way you have captured the action. The red top just adds that little bit of impact and gives the image a lift.
Nice work

Nice stop motion. Selective desaturation works well here.

Fantastic capture! Such detail and clarity. The pop of red really makes the shot. I just wish there was a little more of the jumper and a little less of the sand but then there was probably not much you could do about that. :) Overall it is one of my favorites and you did a great job!

If this doesn't ribbon, I will be shocked! Wonderful action, expressions and the color. A 10

Amazing shot, got any offers from SI yet? ;)

excellent action shot, the colour adds to the dramatic feel of the photo

Great timing, excellent capture.

Visual impact is high ... love that you chose red ... red, black and white = very appealing to the eye.

Love the shot and the colors are great -- but what's a lugworm?
06/21/2004 07:42:48 PM
Excellent action shot...very clear detail; wonderful job! :o)

This may be in the top 5, so I give it a 10, love that dark sand.
