One of the best pictures I've seen so far in ViewBug, the kid's expression is priceless. That's the true reason for photography exist. Congrats my friend!

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in my home town Vught. The 24th of June 2012 the National Youth Athletic Day was held here. The local club, of which I was a member then, asked me to take photographs.
Time
The Day began at 11 a.m. with a starting shot by the major. There were several sections in which the children took part. It was raining almost all day. This photo was taken at half past 3 in the afternoon, when it still was very wet.
Lighting
There was not that much light, because of the rain, which made it easier to take photos in daytime in summer.
Equipment
In 2012 I did not yet have my Nikon D800, it was a D200 a that time. I did use my 70-200 mm lens and shot the photo by hand. Because of the rain I used a very simple rain cover to protect my gear.
Inspiration
I do like sports, especially athletics. I have done it myself for almost 30 years. Because of that I know a lot about timing. Despite the rain I took photo's all day and I even liked it, because of the harsh conditions the children were in. It was cold, it was very wet and they just went on sporting. The moment I recorded here is just the summary of that day, staying focussed even when it's not always easy.
Editing
I cropped the image a bit, did some extra sharpening and I intensified the colours, that's it.
In my camera bag
A Nikon D800, the 14-24 mm, 105 mm macro, 70-200 mm and the 2x extender all by Nikkor. In special occasions or holidays I take the heavy 400 mm with me. Apart from that sometimes I use a Gitzo tripod or a Manfrotto mono pod, or a bean bag. For my 14-24 lens I've got the LEE SW 150 filter system with some ND-filters and the big stopper.
Feedback
Keep taking pictures, especially when the conditions are not so comfortable
