Thanks for the submissions! Here are some thoughts about each photo:

Flo: Great photo! Not only did you stop the action well, but you also captured the raw emotion of the event. I also reminds me of why I got back into photography a year ago -- to capture memories of my daughter growing up. You'll need to save this shot and bring a copy of it when she is competing in the 2028 Olympic diving competition.

Kevan: As always, I'm impressed with your entry. This photo is well composed and captures the athleticism of both the horse and rider. I also like the angle from which the shot was taken.

MSJGD: I got a great laugh out of this entry. Looks like those two ducks could give the Russian synchronized swimmers a good run for their money. Excellent artistic interpretation of this week's theme, and a very nice photo also.

Maureen: I like how well you've stopped the action, and how the player is actually in mid-air. The player seems very concentrated on the soccer ball. Nice capture.

Teekay: Well composed and great humor. This photo pretty much sums up my Olympics moments this year (and every year for that matter). I'm not much of a drinker, but this shot makes me want to kick back with some chips, dip, and a beer.

Airfrogus: As a former runner myself, you took me back a few years with this photo. I really like the composition - how the foreground is mostly empty pavement and the runner is coming into the picture. It's a unique perspective that works well for this shot.


And now, for the medals presentation:

Bronze: MSJGD

Silver: Kevan

Gold: Flo

Congrats, and thanks again for the photos. I haven't posted much here since joining last year, but I'm a constant lurker each week. Keep up the great job!

Congratulation, Flo, and to your worthy companions on the podium! Your little girl and that pool are becoming stars on POTN - shot the same day for the similar G-series challenge? Does her union demand ice cream benefits?
