Nice composition and subtle use of color. Congrats on the top 5.

Congratulations on your 5th placing. Very impressive. The facial expression on the runner is great.

I love thhe detail in this image. It's a clean neat image showing real action. Love the way he's looking ahead really focussed and determined. Something I really like about is the chin of the guy behind - looks like a shark attack. This is my favourite. 10

Great shot! 'Specially since it's in my hometown! It's still very nice despite that fact though. :) I might kick down the brightness ever so slightly, but that's just a nit-pick.

very nice job with the dof. i also really like the emotion.

I like the picture, but I think that I would have added a little saturation.

great action taken at the peak and the frame is filled with it

Nice action photo! Best of the football photos in this challenge.
09/17/2004 03:46:12 PM
Umph! Great action! - wonder if the man with the ball got pushed down? Lovely colour in the photo, which appears to be repeated in the background. I like the focussing of this photograph (DOF). Just wondering if that's a little bit of dust on the lens creating that grey spot/mark to the left? Still giving this an 8 ...and might bump higher after scoring on the rest.

Nice shot. I like how the blurry background complements the tonal range of the colours in the two players. And the guy's eyebrows - are they real, or pencilled in like that?!

Excellent composition. The soft colours work well too. This image portarys the energy of the scene well.

Excellent shot. Great focus on the subject and blurring out the distracting background. Very nice. 10

This is a great shot
I hope it will do very well
09/16/2004 02:53:51 AM
Nice photo. I like the color and the people in the stand blurred.
09/16/2004 02:49:36 AM
I had a problem with this photo. Let me explain, it is great you can almost see what the runner is thinking (great detail) but the bottom of the photo has just to much white. The players pants almost blends into the background. With that said I donít see anyway you could have avoided this. You took a great picture. Highly rated. BTW- Great Action.

Great capture. The only thing is that the colors seem very flat, probably due to cloudy skies? Still the DOF is awesome. Good work and good luck in the challenge.
09/15/2004 03:32:05 PM
Probably the best sports shot in this challenge, great job, I love the detain on the players face.

great shot 10+
09/15/2004 09:07:18 AM
very good
09/15/2004 04:12:50 AM
... is horrible, but your photo isn't :)
Maybe just a little too hot. Looks like for effect, but I don't believe that it's warranted. Nice focus too BTW - especially with him coming at you.
09/15/2004 12:26:18 AM
Excellent job!! The cropping is great, the facial expression is super, and you caught a decisive moment of the game. A 10 from me!

Aggie football? How embarrassing! I don't think the aggies quite qualify for an "action" shot. I think you would've been better off submitting one from the previous week to the "smoke" challenge, as the aggies were thoroughly smoked by Utah. Maybe if you're lucky there might be a "hopeless" challenge during the week of Nov. 6. Then a picture of aggie football should win you a ribbon. ;-)

Anyway, a good picture of a horrible team is still a good picture, and this is a good picture... 7
