[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The 152nd university boat race.

This picture was taken by the Watney's brewery on the River Thames, as the boats rounded the last bend and are now on the home straight. Oxford run away with the lead, and won again for the 4th time in 5 years.

I didn't notice until I downloaded the shot, that a Canadian goose has also got involved in the race. Was the goose a streaker, or trying to sabotage Oxford's chances?? One thing is for sure, he disappeared quite quickly as the rowers got closer!

PP Work;

- Straightened image
- Cropped some of the foreground water
- Adjusted RGB Levels
- Unsharp mask 40%
