PP includes a little bit curves and a little desat that I decided after the fact (should have done it in raw). Then a little bit of selective sharpening followed by adding a border.

I know I shouldn't laugh at other peoples misfortunes & I almost feel guilty about it but that image is just hilarious. It looks like the rider has buried himself in the ground as well.

Yeah... I have pictures that lead up to the crash. But nothing is as attention-grabbing as seeing his feet up in the air like that! :-)

Oh, fabulous! I was in dire need of cheering up, and this has certainly had me laughing (not sure what laughing at someone elses misfortune says about me as a person though..). Technically sound, well composed, but my goodness, what timing!

Stunning action photograph. Wonderful sharpness and tremendous plumes of soil. Shame that the tip of the rear wheel is missing, but what can you do...Hardly something that you can say, "Sorry can you do that again for me"

Timing may be everything but you also need the skill to be able to capture this sort of opportunity when it arises....And you have certainly got that - 9
