Very good action shot - just a bit tight on the left?

Good point, crop was based on the main subject, didn't spot the mismatch in framing of the group.

I know, I know, but essential, having had some images used without permission, all commercial work now has these blights. Sad

Glad so many liked this shot, strangley I didn't think this was a favourite of the shots I got at Gateshead.

Thanks for the award Doug, very much appreciated. I also used to run the 800m but gladly can't remember my times. The standard of the competitiors was of the best, but the atmosphere was very relaxed which made for a very enjoyable event.

I was going to mention 'they saved the best til last' but I thought it was a bit cringe worthy Smile
