Judi - great timing. I am constantly impressed by the action shots you pull off with the 5D - just goes to show it's all about the photographer more than the kit ; - )

Gratz on the Blue and winning the FS.

Congratulations Judi on your first blue in a Free Study. There's no doubt that there will be more of them to come.

I love this shot...from the freeze frame still of the flying dirt in capture to the excellent post processing that fixates my eye on the cowboy in the center. This is a fantastic image that deserves it's top placing here.

Wow what a shot.. I haven't been voting in the last few challenges (ill) and this is the first time I am seeing this.. I can't get over the crispness on every plane.. the flying dirt and the expression on the horse - congratulations Judi, long time coming but to win with such a unique shot must be heaven.

I'd go easy on the processing though as your image doesn't really need it.

08/08/2010 02:48:29 AM
Congrats on your FS Blue. Nice action shot and I think all who saw this really felt bad for this poor guy. Then again, if you are into this, Im not sure you should feel sorry for them..except the poor wife who needs to clean that white shirt. I suppose white does make you more visible when they have to pic up your pieces afterwards. Congrats again

Except it didn't score high enough to be on my profile page. :(

But it does feel good to have it on the front page. :)


I see it on your profile page - is it just about the number you choose to see displayed?

Well done on the blue Judi, it is a truly excellent capture.


Of course...doh! I opted to see the top 6 images...oh well.

Judi, absolutely brilliant! Could you please do a tutorial on how you edited this shot. Not only is it a very nice shot it was edited to perfection IMO. Please when you get time I and probably others would love to see one of your editing tutorials on this photograph.

Now I must go and make it one of my fav's. Congrats on a FS Blue.

This is funny....I was just thinking about you and this image. I was thinking to myself that there is no way this would get a Posthumouse Blue....it just isn't your style. And then I received you comment. So thankyou....and I do take it as a compliment. :)

I'm not a member so I can't vote on member challenges. Instead, I look through the entries for images that make me stop clicking on to the next one. This is one of those images....

Wow! What a great moment to capture! Terrific shot. I'm curious about the shot info, so will check back after voting. Hope it does well
