Personally, I think sports/action challenge in February in Chicago is a tough one. I checked Northwestern University's website and about the only home event was a fencing competition. Hey, I figure there aren't going to be many other fencing pictures. I enjoyed watching the competition -- an interesting mix of speed and grace. I kind of wish I could have done a better job of capturing it. I am not sure this is going to garner much interest. I hate the fact that the feet were out of frame. I hate all of the distracting stuff in the background, but whatcha gonna do about that?

Part of me says this is not good enough to bother entering, and another part of me says this is a learning experience so enter it.

This just confirms I know nothing about predicting my score. A very pleasant surprise:

Great movement. Too bad that the background is a touch overpowering.

Little heavy on the vignette, in my opinion, but a great shot.

I love the Black and white here. I think color would have detracted from the overall composition.

I enjoy shots of less common sports, and this is a good one.
