Yes yes yes - so many images have been frozen motion but here is one that's got more elements than that - motion blur of the dirt, frozen action of the ball and fantastic expressions on all faces. This is a great image and it just makes me smile - nicely done!

Great shot. I've shot a lot of my sons' 13y/o baseball games and love seeing these shots. You most importantly have a great capture of the ball, the expressions are priceless, the dirt flying about and the dof are all wonderful. Looks safe. I bet this is a better shot then the guy with the big lense in the background got.Good luck. -9-

Good capture, a tigher crop would add a lot to the impact of this photo

Wonderful action capture! Think it could be cropped a bit tighter.

Love the facial expression on the slider. It's so hard to get youth sport action shots without distracting backgrounds. The "it's centered" composition police are going to get you on this one. ;^) Good luck.

Nice action and timing. I think a tighter crop would have helped. great to see the baseball in the picture and the emotion of the sliding player

Would have preferred a closer crop. Good picture though!

I would have gone a square crop to cut out left and right space...that would really bring the action up close and personal...she has a great look on her face
