Lovely mix of images Spy, congrats on the publication.you may remember we fell out a bit a good while ago after I commented about "practise sessions" pics being "same old"?, I'm eating my words now!, these are a great Photojournalist style told tale. Well done. Kind regards Graham

Congratulations Kevin.

I agree with NatGeo, that b&w shot was great. and the b&w in the 2nd set is equally good. loved the whole set though, a very different style and interesting way to document this type of event. the reflections shot at the end i like as well.

I really like the moods you have created with the shots. The B+W shots remind me of old prize fighter shots - dressing room before the fight - concentrating/getting ready. Finding the silence and introspection in a crowded and noisy environment.

And congrats as well.

Kevin
