Excellent action capture. You did a great job of getting detail in the snow and white fur without making the image appear to dark. The timing is great with several dogs in the air and some tremendous expressions caught. Great photo!

Hi Achim,

I love these action shots! The dogs look like they are having a lot of fun! Great expressions captured, nice detail, sharpness, and composition. I like the simple background where one's only focus is on the musher and dogs. How in the world did you get this one??

Hi Achim,
Superb winter action picture. Excellent striking POV. Outstanding camera handling. Perfect posting my friend!

I see as the dogs enjoy the running- it is wonderful, Achim!

This is a PRO shot Achim.
Was expected to see: Alaska ,
as place taken but its Germany ? ^_^
Looking how sharp dogs and even man in back are I have to say
f8 seems a good choice. Most lenses are at there best at F8

Hi Achim,
What glorious joy you have captured on the faces of these of these wonderful sled dogs. The brightly clad musher really stands out well against the snow and pale blue sky. The action of these wonderful beast's tongues is priceless.

Hello Achim!
It's a remarkable capture of those happy beasts. There is so much action in just 1/2000 of a second!

Hi Achim, this one is really a winner, with the dog runnings and up in the air and splash of snow is awesome!
Great colours, white balance, sharpness and pov.

Cheers :)

Hello Achim,
Wow, excellent shot, love the action and the color, the dogs runing and the snow flying, Love it! TFS

Hello Achim,
this is on your intro page and so a good place to start (you have been to so many countries that it is hard to know where to begin browsing your gallery!)
Here you have chosen a good POV and it is an excellentand well composed action shot. I like the contrast of the bright colours with the white of the snow and dogs.Don't the dogs look happy? Years ago my husband took our two boys to watch dog sled racing in Northumbria and managed to get lost in the woods.

Hi Achim
absolutely outstanding capture of a unique scene. great image.
amazing dogs. perfect clarity and sharpness.

Bonjour Achim,

J'aime beaucoup cette photo, on voit vraiment la motivation du maître et de sa horde de chiens pour pouvoir arriver à la première place!!!
Ils ont superbes par ailleurs, les chiens évidemment!!!
