I just loved this kid at the dog beach tossing tennis balls for the dogs to fetch. He put all he had into each throw. I like his motion and that he got off the ground.

This is extraordinary. I meant to say that earlier. The sheer determination of it, the awesome raw power of the athleticism, and all this from what, a 6-year old? Kid's gonna grow into a hell of an athlete... I gave you an 8.

Sadly the score isn't as good as the image, mostly I suspect because in a stopped motion challenge the blurred motion of the ball really took points away for the DNMC sticklers. It probably would have done better in F.S. I love the energy you got in this image, but I wish you could have isolated the kid more (framing out the bystanders, shooting from lower down ect.) and really made him look heroic.

Among all the things I like about this shot, is the fact that the dog is looking the other way. :D

Glad this did well! :-) I love it! Surprised it didn't do better to be honest.

Good choice. I think with the color version the kid, the ball and whatever that thing is he's using to throw the ball, all stand out and enhance the picture.

I think a faster shutter would have "stopped the motion" of the ball/thrower.

Ha! Except for the other person upper third... I love EVERYTHING about this!

I might have cropped a bit off the top to hone in on the subjects... they're adorable.
