This entry was for Challenge #10 in dpReview.com. In a Private world challenge the photographer needed to "show images of people who appear to be in their own world not noticing what is going on around them."
This image was an old image that I mined from my flickr.com database. This image depicted the scene prior to the start of Sepang MotoGP event in October 2007. The lone spectator was just sitting under my terrace, and quickly I captured this moment. Such solace in the sole presence, the deafening silence of the terrace was soon reverberated with the thunderous sounds of the 200hp bikes!!
By getting the theme spot on, the forumers agree to rate this image quite highly #31 out of 400 submissions. If you look at the quality of submissions, actually to finish at the Top 10% is already a great achievement!
I will continue participating into these challenges in the future...
