Taken at our agility field next to the local sand quarry works. Adopting a low vantage point, the jump was set up with a tight turn, so I waited for Kye to clear the hurdle. He hit the ground on the turn, right on top of an old muddy mole hill. Love it.

super sharp image capturing the bits that matter , i like the way the dirt flies up from the paws, is the slant on the image intentional? the frame looks a little excessive as it tends to dominate the image instead of the dogs face, but still a great shot,

Wow this is excellent - stunning timing - I have looked at this for ages and the dog detail is perfect - he stand out from the bg almost exiting the image altogether - the mud flying from his landing point is exquisite.

These guys go into a sort of intense concentration when they do agility (we have a terrier that does this stuff occasionaly and it is scary how 'zoned' she gets) Kye's face conveys this wonderfully.

Somebody suggested the frame may be a little heavy - I would agree - but such things are highly subjective (and anycase easy to change now you have the image).
