This is my husband's favorite, the first framed print I sold. A "First Place" & "Best In Show" winner at the Virginia State Fair 2010 -- yet when I uploaded back in July 2009 - Only 2 comments :-(

    It is a fantastic photo, an award winning photo, Linda. But many folks (myself included) do not approve of greyhound racing any longer. In several states it is now banned, and it was finally banned last year in Massachusetts. Now we have hundreds of the wonderful dogs in foster care as we search for homes for them. Being kept in a cage nearly all day, every day, is no way for a dog to live. I'm not going to elaborate on their living conditions. Drzl is one half greyhound and I know what sweet, loving dogs they are. Thankfully, many other people have fought to end this "sport." I mean no hard feelings, and as I said the photograph is beautiful, showing marvelous action. (It's behind the scenes which are very unfair/damaging to the dog.)

    Although it's a great action shot, I have to agree with Patty. I'm such an animal lover, I avoid circuses (with animals) and rodeos.

    Great timing...No doubt you used a fast shutter speed to freeze the action. Great composition and color! Congratulations on your win.

    Excellent shot! I enjoy dog racing but must admit the only time I won a wager was when the window gave me a ticket different than the one I wanted. But that aside, the photograph is what it is all about, not a statement on the world outside the frame. You've done an excellent job on this and truly 'earned' the ribbons.

    Great action shot, but I have to agree with Patty. I'm very uncomfortable with all "sports" involving animals.
