    oof Great to see you back! I knew there was something pro looking in this shot! (I agree few things are as offensive and impolite as a photog pushing through just for the shot so I applaud your good sense and restraint and you still managed to time this one perfectly.) Hope we see you here more often now!

    You captured the perfect moment. I think I would have cropped it a bit closer.

    You got the timing right on this one! Just wished you had not cut off their feet, but I guess maybe there were obstructions.

    Nice capture - I think the river and buildings in the background lend context

    In my top ten having been in a drill team. Good work in paintbrush and gave reason for some chainsaw on the feet of some of the guard. I would have cropped out the chimney to bring the 'extras' at the back more into view.

    No doubt, a serious matter for them. But I can't help, the picture is so funny I have to put it amongst my TF.

    Jade,
your comments are correct this time.
I just submitted this entry not as serious competition but just to mark my return to my panachallenge friends.

To get a better angle and perspective of this , I should be a inflential guy to go inbetween judging marshalls across paid professional photographers and disturb other audience. Not worth it.

    Great subject, crummy background. Chopping the legs off mid-calf doesn't help either. I think with the flat lighting and the shutter speed, you have all the conditions right to nail this shot but I think you need to be closer and shooting from a better angle to really capture the effect - even at this I would have cropped as tight as possible to remove everything to the left and above the figures.
