Jeff Robinson level-deluxe September 23, 2004

Great presentation Chris! Well done. Jeff #171687

Amy N. Cappelli September 23, 2004

absolutely fantastic image. great portrayl of the sense of motion. #799297

Dean Sandifer level-classic September 23, 2004

Fantastic image. Nice motion and lines. My only suggestion would be to clone paint out the blurred foot (or whatever it is)at the top right as it distracts from the line of racers. Nice work. #799333

Michael Allen September 23, 2004

Wonderful execution, Jeff. The crisp focus, narrow horizontal crop and sense of motion are very well done here.

Great image. ..mike ;-} #799368

Louise A. Starbird September 23, 2004

Chris - excellent shot - I agree with Dean - losing that would clean up this composition. Love the tension in this shot! #799372

Diane Addonizio level-classic September 23, 2004

Great capture and presentation! #799408

Chris Boubalos September 23, 2004

Thank you all so much for the comments.
Dean you are absolutely right about the distracting object.
Since i'm new to the site, please suggest the proper action:
I should post a corrected version, or remove this one and replace the upload? #799489

Casey A. Hanson September 23, 2004

This is awesome!
Even with that distaraction, it'a
a very intense image. Well done Chris!
You only get 1 submit per day for the contest Chris, now that you have posted a pic, even if you were to remove it, I don't know if it will let you enter another for today. If not, put it back in tomorrow.Good luck :0) #799514

Charlene Bayerle September 23, 2004

This is awesome Chris!!!!! #799530

Laura Berman September 23, 2004

Exceptionally well done Chris! The crispness of it is awesome, as is the presentation #799605

Dean Sandifer level-classic September 23, 2004

Please don't delete this image and the comments that go with it. Probably the best thing to do is to resubmit the image tomorrow with a slightly altered title (i.e. Competition #2) and include in the description that it is a resubmission after the clone paint adjustment or something to that effect. This sure looks like a winner to me. #799662

Lori Ditlefsen September 23, 2004

A very nice pan with nice clarity and color. I didn't notice the foot at the top until I read the notes. But yes, I would clone that out then resubmit! Well done! #799740

Karma Wilson September 23, 2004

I would definately clone that out or crop to remove it and resub as I think this is absolutely something the judges would love. Great job!

Chris Boubalos September 23, 2004

Thank you all,
as I see, deleting the image will also delete these comments, so I will just additionally submit another version.
Hopefully tomorrow. #800234

Cindy K. Bracken September 23, 2004

This is excellent! Nice job!
