Wonderful! I swear I can hear them (although what I hear is Yorkshire having spent too much time binging on Downton Abbey). (OK)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

This is a wonderful image, Graham - the guys' faces tell us everything, and the contrast between the two is sure to make anybody smile, even if they don't have a clue what a ploughing contest is. The sharp capture of all their details against the slightly blurred environment is technically perfect. Great impact and perfect black and white conversion.

I'm not sure how to critique this other than pointing out the obvious.

The men are sharp, the falling rain adds motion making it feel live, the blurred background separates the men from the image giving a three-dimensional feel, and the stark processing is perfect with the weather. The taller man's expression is amazing, but the smaller man's is absolutely telling!

You are a master at your craft and we are honored you share your images here! S-
