    Congratulations Billy. This is really a great shot.
LaRee, hahaha! No, I don't know Billy's pictures before. But I sometimes recognize his models and also his style - as I do with other members too. This time the extra info was enough. ;-)

    Many thanks dear friends!! such nice comments are really welcomed, and also your votes, finishing so high in this great challenge full of great pics is an honour! thanks!!

This was a carefully set image, I made a little and funny session for my nephew and his "furious" quadrunner, most pics at ground level, and then he helped me (a lot!) to get some "from above" for the theme, this one was the best, really happy you liked it too!
The sharpness was critical here, he was moving really fast, so I took 2-3 pics previously only to lock focus and set shutter speed (more time for him to enjoy LOL!), hence the nice sharpness... in fact, at pixel level, there's still a hint of movement blur/backfocus, but nothing specially bad, the soft sharpening was enough. The FZ50 did a great job here :-D
Franz, drivingback: no, I didn't climb a tree LOL! and no bleachers here... this is at my parent's house, taken from our "horreo", a traditional Asturian wooden storehouse lifted from the ground level, that has a little corridor all around, I took the pics from there.
LaRee: I think Franz, like Michael, recognized my nephew from previous challenge entries... despite wearing a helmet LOL!

    this is in my T5 love the colour and sharpness. the dust gives movement yet the 'monster' is still
well done

    Good colors here and great movement sensation...And i must admit that I'd ranked it more higher if i listened to my heart!( damn to my passion for this kind of amusement

    Was this shot from the bleachers? I like everything about this shot. Colors, exposure and the sense of action. The trail of dust contributes to the action and shows how your nephew successfully skidded (Not sure aout this term?) and maneuvered on the course. TT. Good luck!

    I'll bet your nephew had a great time helping you to capture this action shot. It'super!

    Nice shot and vantage. Franz, did you know that Billy was submitting this or?

Sep 25, 2010
    Wow, Billy. This one is brilliant! Perfect on theme, the colors fit beautifully together and I like the circle of dust very much. Another top contender from you, for sure.
Now tell me that you climbed a tree for this shot and I owe you an 11th point for your initiative!

    Great fun! Super composition & action. Your model did a great job. I take it he is the 'star of your family'.

    Great action shot! Everything is very crisp, tough to do with an object that is moving quickly.... good job!
