Something very different.

Last December while in Vegas I was (according to some) lucky enough to get tickets to the Ultimate Fighting Championship Tuff 6 season finale. Not everyones cup of tea, I know, but I really enjoy it.

Although cameras are not really allowed, a blind eye is turned to small compacts being used.
I managed to grab this shot at the end of the main bout.
In the photo you can see Matt Dansig on the left (the winner) and Tommy Steer on the right (who through a process of Elimination, didn't win!)
On the back row are the massive UFC personalities (from left to right) Bruce Buffer, Dana White (the UFC president) and Matt Hughes.

I'm really pleased with the shot as it was taken from long range with a Kodak 4meg compact and the timing of catching that "The winner is" moment, was spot on.
