Hi Peter,
Man what a great photographer reaction to the action moment! WOW!
Very nice indeed!

This is the type of moment if the photographer about to take the picture 
starts to think instead of reacting  ....... the moment is gone and merely 
burned in the brain to haunt for days simply becasue you know what you 
missed thinking about it!

"You can't think and bat! .... Yogi Berra!
"We've come this far don't spoil it by thinking!" Clint Eastwood!
"See, shoot!"  ted grant :-)

We as humans, as soon as we start to think about shooting action moments and 
picture taking. We should immediately stop thinking and just do it by 
instinctive reaction!
If I may offer, if you look at the new  site you'll see a 
few photographs that if I thought about them..... the moment would've been 
lost. :-)
It's simple KISS... SEE-SHOOT!

Once again Peter a wonderful reaction photo! Good on you. You didn't think 
about it did you? ;-)
