Pick of the Pix Series, Start of a Winning Streak

Specs: 1/125s, 85mm prime, f/4.0, ISO: 1600

This was taken in one of the first few rounds of Carolina Dillen's progression to a silver medal for sparring at the 2008 World Cup.

I think it may be a bit of a favourite of Carolina's because she provided it for the Prime Minster's Scholarship Certificate evening on 12th May. At the start of the evening a giant slide show flicked through a photo of each of the scholarship recipients performing in their chosen sport. There must have been 200 or so images of yachts racing, swimmers, rowing, athletics, motorcross. This was all happening in silence as the evening was about to begin and when Carolina's image popped onto the giant screen there was an audible gasp from the audience. They were impressed!
