I was at a park by my house with some friends. We were playing tennis, and as always, I had my camera. I had been just taking shots of them playing with my sigma but I thought maybe some setup stuff would look good. I used my kit lens and took this shot on 18mm lying on the ground in front of him. I had many shots with him jumping in the air and the ball being right there, but i liked this one the best:
A. Because his hair and face (more action)
B. Because of the clarity of the racquet and little motion blur. Also, this was one of the few that the ball was in the frame.
