Another adventure

This will probably be my last post of the Quest at least for now. I did quite a bit of cropping and other ps work on this one, but what attracted me to this portion of the photo was the light and the action.

Really liking your series on the dogs. This one captures the action well, with all the snow flying in the air.
polarbear: Thanks! What I most wanted to do was get in close to the dogs - after all, they're what the race is all about.
Lovely, lovely image. I had a taste of dog sled safari at Christmas but my images are just souvenir snaps and don't convey any of the character or action or atmosphere as this image does. Love it.
polarbear: Thanks - I had to take a LOT of images to get the few that I really liked. My usual subject matter is flowers/nature etc and I find that a lot easier because the subjects don't move! But it was good fun (not to mention good practice) to have something a bit more dynamic to work on.

This is definitely my favorite one in the series, Polarbear. These dogs really do live for this, don't they! So inspiring.

Also, your PS work here almost has a watercolor effect, which I really like. This is going to my Likeys!
polarbear: Thanks Ginnie. I'm glad you like the photo! Unfortunately the race only starts in the Yukon every alternate year (they reverse the route each year) so it will not be until 2009 that I can take some more of these race photos.
Congratulation for this very nice serie !
polarbear: Thanks - I really appreciate your comments!

Great series pb and this one is a ripper with the action. it looks so cold
polarbear: Thanks Nev. It was cold. About 25 below. Brrrrrrrrr
Great action shot. I feel like I'm there.
polarbear: Thanks Red Pen - I had a lot of fun shooting this series (despite the cold smile )
