Nikki McDonald 8/4/2010 5:34:59 PM

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. #8806648

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.
