Fred - the shot is nice and sharp - good intensity.

Two areas where the shot could be improved:
1) over saturated - especially the red channel - you can see it in his face his leg and the coat of the person in the background. Drop the saturation a bit - at least in red channel and it will look a little better

2) the people in the background are distracting. It could be there are no clean backgrounds - i.e. there is always someone in the background - but I would think there's got to be an angle on the course a little cleaner. In any event, it's something to consider when you set yourself up and time the shot. Still a nice shot though. Thanks for sharing!
