x100s action in mono & colour and Nik Software

At an athletics meet in Sydney today, I thought I'd see what the x100s could achieve track side. One of my sons was running in the 1500m race and I waited near the starting gun hoping to catch a few shots. I left everything in Program mode and set the drive to 6fps, and focused using the center focal point. I processed the B&W shot in Nik Software on the PC to bring out the structure and contrast, especially in the sky. I've also included a colour version with a slightly different crop, also using Nik Colour Efex Pro. Enjoy.
