First- Great peak action and expression on the sliding player. The dust kicking up really made this photo a winner. Second- The photographer was positioned perfectly to capture a great moment of the rider being bucked up from the horse and trying to hang on. all the elements of a great sports action photo. Third- Great shot of two kids fully committed to a play despite the consequences of a collision.
