Note to those that thought it was taken in a studio. It was NOT.

Taken outdoors at night.

Challenge did not say no staging. Does not say capture a sporting event. Open your mind people.

Challenge states "Capture the action of any sport"

I have captured the action of Hurdling :)

So this must mean that DPL team members are communicating with each other letting them know what photo is "theirs"...I wish this could be proven more than with the stats. Thanks for your observations.

Edit: So team members are allowed to "know" other team member's photos but can't vote on them.

I can't believe those 1's, 2's and 3's. But this time is evident those votes came from competitors in the same challenge...just compare these two figures:
NON-PARTICIPANTS Average = 7.4065
PARTICIPANTS Average = 6.4571
A difference of almost ONE FULL POINT is not only statistically irrational and impossible, but gives us more than a clue on how voting patterns are affected by DPL. You were definitely robbed on this one.

edited to add:
1.- among the top 5 images, you are, by far, the most affected by the difference between non-participant vs. participant avg's.
2.- about the outtakes you consider too blurry...I like them even more than your entry

Great lighting. Good stopped action photography. Well done.

I like the hurdle shots in this challenge. I'd prefer a slightly faster speed to stop his front foot.

Easily the best of the jumping hurdles shots I've seen thus far. I like that you were able to isolate him from any distractive background -- and do it without Photoshop trickery. Really good lighting; excellent, determined expression.

Delicious photograph of a beautiful moment. Sharpen in picture. Small minus point is that the elbow there net does not stand up. But you get certainly a high score.

amazing

Super shot. Lighting is perfect. Deserves a ribbon. The hurdle imperfections are a tiny bit distracting.

Excellent. An extremely high-quality entry. High marks.

You might get dinged for the same reason that I may... :) Nice shot(and light).
  Photographer found comment helpful.

For me this challenge was about capturing in the moment action shots - not staged action. Other than that, I like this shot and would have loved it if his face had a greater sense of intensity as if he were truly running a race. <not voting>

sorry, but a big no go from me. studio shots just don't have a sports action feel to them, no matter how well they're taken. you might get points from the dpc eye-candy crowd, but not from me ;-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I want to believe that this was actually taken in a field and not in a studio. Regardless, it looks like it was setup. Great shot. Great lighting. Love the way he is making eye-contact. If it was not a setup shot, I would give it an 8 (if it isn't, pardon me for deducting a mark). 7/10.

GOOD SHOT, BUT IT'S VERY STUDIO LIKE.

That left arm looks like it's ready to break off. Nice image.
