I agree with Kyricom, if you play with the curves a bit and bump up the shadows this could be even better than it is now. Might even go all the way to 11. Great capture!

That is a really nice picture, but it just looked like prairie until I noticed the tractor. Might want to play with curves just a little to make that stand out more. Nice shot, though.

I go to many moto events, and I know there is a lot of debris in the air. It just looked to me like a high tonal contrast shot, I didn't say it was though. There is a heavy haze in the background, but the motorcycles in the foreground, along with the debris, are very stark. It is still a great capture whatever way you look at it.

avatar adeincyprus

this is a great shot, but it looks like a lot of tonal contrast has been used, or maybe high clarity. It sort of takes some of the reality of the shot away for me, and makes it more 'poster' like.

This shot is very similar to one used in another contest but since it is in fact a different shot in a different contest it will be allowed to stay.

Looking at the comments, I have to agree with Cocor. This is a different contest, and it's definitely a different shot, and a good one too. To be honest, I don't actually remember who the author is, I will of course as soon as I vote,, but it's the shot that I remember, and well done for having such a memorable photograph, considering the hundreds we look at each week just on this site.
I will cast my vote.

cocor says:

Actually I think this misunderstanding may arise again in the future: on the one side the contest rules request anonymous shots, on the other one authors usually make several shots of the same thing/event so it would be a pity not to place several nice shots if on theme with different contest themes.
The rule could be "no similar shots in one and the same the same contest" which would allow authors to use different shots (of the same event) in different contests.
Mods' opinion?

I didn't say you had used it before, but is is so obviously taken at the same place and time (more or less) as your very successful recent photo.

Used before. Apparently there has been a rule change and you can no longer use the same image again.
