Challenge: Stopped Motion III (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VR DG IF-ED
Location: Cleveland OH
Date: Aug 6, 2006
Galleries: Sports, Candid
Date Uploaded: Aug 6, 2006

This was a "Candid" shot taken from a distance. I did think about asking them for some camera shots. Then I could have gotten better closeup and angles, etc. Next time I will. This was cropped from the full net, all players visible, size.

Another suitable outake had a less blurry background with distracting subjects.

Good job stopping the action, I would have liked this more if I could have seen one of their faces more clearly.

Interesting to look at. I like the kicked up sand being "frozen"...that works for 'Stopped Motion'. ;^) On the down side, the image seems a little flat like it needs a shot of contrast, and maybe a small boost in color saturation. Best of luck to you in the challenge.

decent enough action shot, but, if shot from a different perspective, you could have had a much more dynamic shot without it being so busy (like shooting from the ground up from under one of the post). above avg.

The position of his left hand is unfortunate.... or could it be fortunate!!
