Coming Out - Tough Guy`s !

By rogerdoger  
SmilePlease describe your photo here. This is a shot I took the year before last at the Tough Guy event ,held in the Midlands. It is a cross country assault course that finishes up where the competitors hit the `killing fields` which are a series of muddy lagoons with all manner of obstacles in and have to crawl through. Unfortunately, the organisers do not allow amateur photographers in any more which is a great shame because photographically it is a great event . This was at the last event when it was `open` to `us lot`! It was taken with a wide angle lens just as they were climbing up on to the bank. Both my camera and I got covered in mud as they clambered out. but I felt it was worth it. Convereted to monochrome using Siver Efex Pro (hard structure) and once again through a Topaz filter to give a `hard` contrast to the image. For more images from the Tough Guy event visit my web site at
