Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Good energy in this shot, I was hoping that you might get that lens in between the ropes to bring us a bit closer to the action.

@Curly: That would have been an excellent idea. I need a lot of work on action shots. Things were happening so fast! Most of my pictures were horrible.

Beautiful action shot here! I love how the guy's arm is blurred, indicating motion. Great contrasts in this B&W as well!
