Nice shot. I think it would have scored better if you had the opposite angle and could see the faces of the two primary players... but we can't always be in the right position.

I really can't believe this only scored 5.8! This is AWESOME! How could you GET any more stop action than this, and being such a huge baseball fan, how could anything be more interesting!

A way, way, WAY underrated shot!!!

Way safe. Nice colors and focus. It's nice to see the fans' reactions and your DoF permits that. 8

A smaller aperture would have separated the action from the crowd through blur - as is I am drawn to the expressions of the crowd.

smaller aperture value would have been better here, but nice moment capture

Didn't you find it amusing that there is an exciting play at the plate going on and fellow teammate #22 doesn't appear to have any interest in what happens? ;^) Good job of capturing the timing of the slide correctly. How deep were you on aperture? I wonder if there was enough distance between the play and the stands to have blurred them out some with a shallower choice?
