Awesome dynamic action that you captured here!

I really like this for a lot of different reasons. The composition is bang on with the focus being on the runner's face. You can see the determination to touch home base. You can see the tension in the catcher's body as he starts moving to tag the runner. The chain link fence could be a distraction but it visually frames the scene well while adding a common element of the sport into the shot. The exposure is excellent with no obvious blown highlights or underexposed areas. The only way this could be better is if this was shot at Yankee Stadium during game 7 of the World Series. Wow...

It looks like you shot through chain link, and it vignette's the shot. Great shot, but not very sharp.

if this were my picture, i would use some curves to brighten up the action and sharpen up the runner/catcher... good shot! ..8

The fence is distracting. The (what I perceive to be)coach's reaction in the background is interesting.

nice capture, the only problem that I can think is the fence, it is distracting the concept.

You can see the fence, and it distracts from the overall image...

Fence adds soft touch frame. Definetly captured the action and runner's determination. Nice composition. Was he safe or out? Good luck.

Under exposed and the fence is really distracting IMHO

What an exciting moment! I like the fact that I can see the emotion in the face of the player, but the colours are quite dull. I would think that adjusting the levels could improve this. The fence is also a distraction.
