    HOLY CRAP!!! And to think after this thread I had written that shot off! I couldn't come up with anything better so decided to enter it anyway. It was chosen as featured photo of the week on photographyreview.com so I hoped it might have a chance here. Wow, with the submissions this round, I can't believe I actually made it bowdown.gif Congrats to to the rest of the semifinalists and props to to everyone else that entered thumb.gif If the caliber has gotten this high after round 7, I can't wait to see the shots come the last few rounds :wow

    Congratulations, Nik! :ivarWell deserved. BTW, I used to do quite well at the horse track in my youth. :D

    Congratulations to everyone who made the top ten, to those who got some votes, and to everyone else who entered this round. It was truly challenging and thought provoking contest.
