Mary Beth, when I grow up, I want to process images just like you do! The expressions of the riders in itself is outstanding, but what I really like is the faint color left in the two front riders.

I am sure you will have multiple finalists for July, Mary Beth, and this one will surely be among them. It is my favorite of your entries. The moment of the capture, the sharpness of the stopped action, the back lighting that works to highlight the front riders, the dust, the expressions, the tones, the effects -- I'm with everyone else. I love it.
All your reenactment shots are wonderful -- I particularly like Remmy Rides into Town and Draw. My other favorites from the month are your portraits of Chester, especially Waiting for Mom. Good luck in the contest.

Mary Beth, I didn't get a chance to do my favorites list because of all the running about, but this would have been my choice, although choosing between these amazing and beautifully presented images from the series is nearly impossible. But this is a spectacular image, beautifully done, and I congratulate you.

Very dynamic image Mary Beth with lots of action and excitment. The low saturation adds to the old west feel of the subject matter.

I agree with everything said above. It seems that most of the "people" winners tend to be of the portrait nature as opposed to action or decisive moment. I love that this one won. Probably something to do with your post-processing technique. If you teach a class for BetterPhoto, I'll sign up.
