Someone forgot to tell you that Pentax can't shoot sports. You timed it perfectly Ash. The only issue I have is that the image on the gallery page looked a little soft until I clicked on it to see the full size image you submitted.

Thanks Tim.
True, but for some reason the original is tack sharp than it does and for some reason during the upload there has been a loss of fidelity. Probably because of the forum's JPEG compression of an oversized image...

Here's the linked larger version on Flickr:

In any case it was a balancing act for me getting adequate DoF whilst not compromising too much on shutter speed.
