What I liked about this shot is not the eye popping aspect of it. Instead its one that your should savor just a bit. You've got the ground ball going up the middle. The second baseman and shortshop wonder whose to blame. The runner is taking advantage of it while the right fielder is busy chasing it down. And the best thing about it is they all come together in a perfect diamond shape.

Interesting shot at least in terms of the subject. The two boys in the background really detract from this picture however.

I love the background in this photo - it really captures how chaotic & disorganized children's sports can be. Oh, and nice shot of the runner too.

Great expression. The centred composition works well here and the colours are nice.
