this is my awsome friend Aaron who allowed me to take pictures of him while his dad shot him in the face. Yes this is a set-up shot. Its extremely hard to get anything like this while actually playing. Aarons dad is 5 or 6 feet away shooting with the paintball gun head on while I take the side position for the shot. It took alot of tries to get what I was looking for. We did manage to get some good ones tho. Enjoy.

Excellent shot Shane. Yes, it is tough getting a shot like that during a game. Timing has to be perfect. You can usually catch one on the break OR if someone's in a snake. Might have scored higher had you stood left a bit.
I didn't vote, but would have definitely given it at least an 8. Great job.

A striking image!

Great capture. This really is a "burst of color". Too bad there is so much red and blue in the image. It took me a moment to find the color subject.

Great capture. I wonder how many comments will be about the title.
