I do like this in the fact that I was able to capture the one in the foreground and the other doing the leap. In some sense I was lucky enough to have the race close and be at the right spot.

Great capture, and I guess it speaks for itself, and doesn't need a note but it is always nice to see what the photgrapher says.
I think the composition and timing of this shot are so good, that head just beyond the hill is great.

I can't say that I would have liked to have been standing where you were. A great POV for this action shot. I agree the person's head in the background is a nice touch. Too bad the sky wasn't bluer that day, but I like this action shot anyway. Nice sharpness and detail with the mud flying into the air. Well done.

Great action shot, Brian - well done! The depth of field is perfect as well as the composition. You really get the sense of speed from this shot.

Another fine action shot - well framed and you've kept the seperation of the three moving elements really well - lucky or thoughtful positioning you ended up with a great picture.
