Ralph........ What a fantastic candid shot!!! I absolutely love this and you should know that it's my favorite in so many ways! The first and most important is because my Dad coached high school wrestling when he was in college at Southwestern Oklahoma State University. As a result he follows the sport religiously every season. Second being is that this is the best candid I've seen you do! Third is everything else about it is perfect........Well done my friend!!! 5 STARS!!

Superb dynamism and a great narrative. This one really tells a story. Top work. The 50d works well at ISO3200 too.

My 50d has been back at Canon for the past week. Shutter problems (Err 22). Very disappointed.

Certainly, there is such conviction in his eyes! Superb instant sports! All children have a dad who can beat your daddy! " Same for the mothers, they are only having a most beautiful child in the world!

I love the title for this Ralph. My husband was a wrestler and my son tried out in high school. Your words made me think of that!

Oh, I suffer with the underdog.... I hope both children were awarded in the end. The emotion shot here is very nice.

A perfect capture of emotion seen in both of the competitors' faces; one of confidence and the other realizing eventual demise.
