Very good image, sharp and clear. My only minor critisism might be the white post, but I can live with it.

Magnific catch! Tecnhnically, it seems to me to be perfect. DOF is just right. So are the colors.
Love the expression and the action you've managed to freeze. It's an original shot, causes impact and deserves a 10.

Masterful photograph! Emotionaly this was not my favorite, it kept drawing me back to it. It nails the challenge and is superb in photographic quality and skill. Depth of field is wonderful and focus is amazing. When I vote, I vote very intensly by process of elimination and graduation. The best photo in the challenge will only receive a 4 from me if it does not meet the challenge. So for me 1-4 is the scale for the rejects. Then I start with the 5's and begin to push my favorites up to ten, each step has fewer entries until I have my 10. In this challenge, you were my 10. I know i will see this in the top 10, maybe top 5, GREAT JOB!!!!

excellent sharpness, good background blur, samsung distracting but what can you do? He is blowing that whistle hard, yes? Meets challenge, in focus, composition okay. 2 extra points for showing a decision made - 9 from me. Good Luck in the challenge!

I have to bump the capture of this decision up to a 10. It is a perfect 'Sports Illustrated' image with a dof that highlights the main subject exclusively while still putting him in the setting he is supposed to be in. The crop (square) is by far not my favorite ratio, but this image requires it for balance and complteness of the subject's body language which is the definition of capturing the decision. Great Job!
