Without determination on the field, on the court, in the pool, or anywhere else in athletics, you have no hope for success. Thus, I want to see images that clearly demonstrate an athlete's determination. Archive shots are permissible.
The top images will be selected by the moderators (this month only)and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image will be added to the Monthly Challenge Winner’s Gallery for the Sports Forum. The monthly winners will also choose the finalists and the theme for the following month.
I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!
RULES: -- Post up to 7 images but only one image/post -- Include shooting info so we can learn from each other -- Previously posted images are welcome but not previous contest winners -- When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post. -- Include a title in the subject line -- Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens -- Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback -- WARNING Posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge will not be selected as finalists and may be periodically removed by the moderators without notice

Wow, I love those yachting images. You must be on the water to get that close to the action even with a significant telephoto, so that means you are not on a stable platform, most likely. Very sharp, and I guess that is why you used those high shutter speeds.
