Crikey *KAREN*!

My heartiest congratz for the elevation to *FINALIST* status for this incredibly good sports shot.

It has everything going for it - the unique point of view, the uniformed karate (?) enthusiasts, the flipper in mid-flip, the great poses, the clear shadows and that fantastic floor as a background.
Add to all that your excellent exposure and focus and it has *WINNER* written all over it!
