Q: uplaoding a Tiff photo

A: Do you know?

Usually the best stories build to a climax. No matter how many times I watched a horse and rider fly over the hurdles during the televised main event of the 2010 International Equestrian Championship held yearly at Borgo La Bagnaia, a Tuscan resort near Siena, I let out a sigh of wonderment as I tried to capture the climax of each jump.
