Nice face he's got there, as long as he got the HR that's all that matters...but I see no reason why you can't enter unless it's one of the specified challenges, this is more for fun and sharing weekly images. Certainly not worth depriving us with what you've been shooting.

I really like this one Fordie! My daughter rides competitively and I know how hard it is to catch a shot like this....

Thanks David, I was trying to take shots that were just a little different from the normal photographs you see.

The Nikon 180mm f2.8 lens is great for sports and a bargain second hand . The AF is plenty fast enough and its a fun walk around lens on the DX format.

Initial Breach

During a qualifying run at Lake Havasu this last Saturday, top fuel hydro "Spirit of Texas" appeared to lose a head gasket which causes a subsequent fireball in the frames that follow this one.  (The pilot Scotty Lumbert is just fine, BTW.)  This shot is from the moment the pressure, oil, and spark, initially breach the engine in a dirty, oily ball of fire.

Re: Anna's Hummingbird ( female )

Iain and my taste often differs...sometimes greatly...more than anything because BIF is just not my cup of tea, but I couldn't agree with him more on this one.

Absolutely beautiful Winnie.

Re: Anna's Hummingbird ( female )

Thanks so much Iain, Jim and Chuck. Really appreciate those thoughtful comments. I almost didn't post it in this week " Photo of the Week" . I changed my mind after played around a little bit in LR ( NR & crop ). She came down so close and not camera shy at all. Here's the original.
