This has been the toughest culling for me.  I could have easily added another 8 or 10 images that deserved to be in the final cut.  The winner of this challenge takes on June's topic!  If you click on the first image, you can then scroll them all at a larger view (at least you can do this in Chrome).

Thanks very much for including one of mine, Michael. Didn't expect that as I'm not a very sporty guy.

 

Being a polite Canadian, I won't vote for myself. 😏

Thanks Michael for including one of my images. Having won this challenge twice it is not easy picking the short list especially this challenge with such excellent images to pick from.

Hi Michael,

 

Thank you for including one of mine, I really didn't expect it, as sports is not really my thing.

And also, because I honestly believed that many photographs were much better than mine.

 

Good luck everybody.

Wow, thank you very much for selecting that image. I found that whole event an incredible experience, of people overcoming adversity. A little bit rain isn't going to put them off!

This is a super powerful and inspiring image.  I could easily see it being used in advertising and being in B&W makes it even that much more awesome!!  I wish it was mine!!

Thanks once again. It was a gift of a situation in many ways, crying out to be monochromed to highlight the rainfall. Now I need to work out what to do next!
