Head to Head Ski Race

This photograph shows two alpine snow skiers competing in a head to head giant slalom race.  The racers start simultaneously on side by side courses for crowd-pleasing action.  The skiers in this image are very close in speed and very close together on the course.  It makes for a dramatic photo to depict this kind of duals race.  As close as they are, though, only the nearest racer is in focus.  We were photographing from quite close to the course so there wasn't enough depth of field in the lens to allow both of them to be sharp.
100-400 lens at 135mm, 1/3200 second at f/5.0, ISO 200.
