This is a goalie friend of mine. Down in the butterfly, making the save with his stick down and glove up.... spray flying at him from the players stopping in front of him....

Hey there from the Critique Club

First off, congrats on your best scoring entry to date. It always nice to up that best score and see a new image sitting at the top of the profile page.

Camera Work/Technical: While I like the spray and the action that you captured here, but your shutter speed is far too slow for this type of shot. This needs at least 1/250, maybe even quicker. All the motion gives the appearance that most of the frame is out of focus.

Lighting: Your lighting is very nice and very even. I do like the ice being just a bit overexposed. It really adds to the action of the image.

Composition/Content: Your composition is a little tight for this type of shot. With goalie shots, its nice to see the all of his equipment. Nice job catching the pads, but chopping off the stick seems more accidental than an intentional composition. Its also better to include the puck, unless of course your buddy let it fly through the 5 hole.

My Opinion: 5.4 is a pretty solid score for what you captured here. With a quicker shutter and a better composition, this one would have done much better for you. Again, congrats on a new top score. I look forward to more.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide a critique on your entry,

I'm having trouble finding the puck on this.
