    I wonder how many "yeah" votes it takes to make the shortlist to the issue :)

    Marcus Bradbury said (12 Dec 2007):

    It depends on whether it's the main theme of the issue. I thought I was doing quite well in the 'tools of the trade' theme, but then they only published 10 pictures or something like that. That takes the odds way down.

    Grit in his facial expression shows me how hard the rider is working and how determined he is.

    This is spectacular. As you know, I shoot cycling and triathlon and I've never seen a capture as perfect as this. The expressions, the detail, the light. All perfect. If this doesn't make JPG, they should fold.

    probably the most exhilarating shot in the theme so far. i agree with lee s.

    I plan to visit Seattle sometime in January, so a stop-off in Vancouver would work out nicely :) Probably 2nd or 3rd week of January.

    You better still be visiting Seattle in January! ;)
    Love this shot. Agree about the facial expression. And I love how the three of them are all in a diagonal row, leading back into a shallower DoF. Excellent composition. Gets my vote. :)
