what prevented you from shooting vertical and getting the feet in a frame? it is just so easy: turn your camera 90 degrees either way.

Good picture but the subject isn't in motion - he's frozen. No racquet blur, no ball, just stopped motion.

the lines on this shot are playing tricks on my head, lol. It almost looks like he is playing against a blue wall and he is standing about a 2 feet from the wall. but I know thats not the case, but without any other details... I like it. :)

Tommy's feet should have been included in the shot as no doubt many will mention...apart from that...I like the colour and sharpness

The game is what puzzles me. It's not tennis, it must be squash? There is no clue in the photo. You have to rely on knowing the name (and I don't follow tennis). Nice colours, nice focus, and obvious kinetic energy - but no clue about what is happening.
