Rowing Practice
























A  shell passes under the Founders Bridge across the Connecticut River,
with the coach exhorting the crew to pull harder.

This is an unusual and wonderful photo, Jack. Love the action in it with the rowers dwarfed by the underside of the bridge. the spots of colour also add ton its uniqueness.

Your photo could be called the decisive moment. Perfectly caught and the arches make it special. Reminds me of my rowing days!

Love the composition with the arches -- well done! I always enjoy seeing rowers, especially when they're cutting across a placid body of water.

What a strange, unusual, but soo interesting picture!I like the movement in it, and at the same time the heavy arches make it special, giving a strange mood to the scene....

To answer to your yesterday's question: I keep being surprised and marveled every day by the landscapes among which I'm living. And I feel lucky and blessed.

Pardon, but may I gush for a moment? This is one fine shot. Love the arches, the movement to the right and the left. My my, you've outdone yourself Jack.
