Lighting was difficult on this. The runner is clearly underexposed, but in Basic editing, very difficult to fix.

I get it. Runners on base and advancing.

I have been thinking about this image for a couple of days now. The thing is, it looks like two guys racing each other in opposite directions.

I am not convinced the runner is advancing to third. Where is second? where is the ball? Hell, if it were not for the helmet on the runner, and the thick pin stripe on the other athlete I wouldn't even think of them as opposing teams.

I am looking at only part of the story, longing for more info.

Comp could be tighter, good capture of motion, light good, excellent emotional value, excellent color, dof could be shallower but not disturbing since bg is static, ok movement, over all could be better.

Not sure which of the guy's is 'running to third' maybe they both are :- )

But I'm guessing it's the guy facing the camera from his expression.

You've captured his urgency nicely and i like the movement in the dust.
