Challenge #64 -- "Stuck in the Middle"

Show me your best shot where you, as the photographer, are in the middle of the action. I want to feel like I'm a part of the scene and involved with the moment. This would suggest wide angles but it is, of course, open to interpretation.

The modern day master of being in the middle of it is Bruce Gilden (external link) -- "I'm known for taking pictures very close, and the older I get, the closer I get."

---------------

This comp is all about having a bit of fun. Be creative and give it your best shot!
Posting will end at 9pm PST Monday August 25th, 2008 and Winners will be announced
as soon as possible after the contest has closed.

Photo Submissions:

1. Camera - Any Canon DSLR Camera
2. Time - any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Size - Please see the Image posting rules.
4. Post-Processing - do whatever you like and the host will decide if it works.
5. Posting - * ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.* Photo Name in the message subject line.* Camera model & lens used.* Notes -- post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
6. Commenting - No commenting during challenge. When the posting is closed and a winner has been declared, comments can be made in this thread.
7. Have FUN!

One challenge every week, on the following schedule:

* New Topic - After winner is declared.
* Posting Starts - Right after topic is announced.
* Posting Ends - 9pm PST Monday August 25th, 2008
* Winner from this competition decides the theme of the next one (and judges it for a winner) after this competition is closed.

To make this more interesting, I'm going to throw in a USD $25 gift certificate to Adorama or B&H as a prize to the winner of this week's challenge. (Residents of other continents may pick another store if they offer an equivalent online gift card.)

P.s. I am not sure why I cannot get my file size small enough for this web page without just killing the image quality...
