Dave Albo the supershooter from Colorado is asking for help picking out his best of 9,300-plus images at Malaga worlds for entry in the IAAF photo contest. He’s chosen his top 13 and wants y’all to advise him on which to submit.
“If I were to make the top 3,” he notes, “I’d get a trip for two to Monaco in December to attend the award ceremony. I have a LOT of good images from Malaga, so .. why not enter and see what happens? There is no downside in doing so. The hard part is that I must submit exactly one photo, out of the 9388. So I have gone through the collection one more time looking for exceptional photos that meet all of these criteria.”
Of course, thousands of his shots meet the criteria:
- Sharply in focus
- Properly exposed
- Interesting composition
- Captures a dramatic or impactful moment
Dave writes: “It was pretty daunting to narrow it down, but here are my 13 finalists for the ONE photo to enter into the contest. Wish me luck picking a winner. If you have a strong opinion one one of these, contact me with your vote.”
Good luck, Dave. I like the “Spirit of Competition” showing M35 American sprinter Sean Burnett helping up who I think is Germany’s Zbigniew Sikorski after the 200 final.

The weight thrower, because it shows we’ll continue into high age. Otherwise Jeanne, focus of the athlete and the composition I like most
