Great shot! I know how hard paintball is to shoot. Especially getting shots like that. I am planning on doing the same type of shoot in the future.In studio though. Yeah, it will be a mess. Don't worry, the neighbours are cool about the noise. lol
I would imagine your friends shocker was coated! You guys must have had fun! Keep it up!

You caught the action great! I like how you can see him squinting as the ball hits his goggles. This is what you could call "TAGGED!" Very cool -BB

P.S. Is this ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', '/') + 1) . ' paintballjumper?

Very cool,I think the depth of field is a little bit narrow which probably complicated your processing, but what a moment in time! Love his squint.

Was this set up or do you just have the best timing on earth?

Wow a photo that you have to look at for a while before you realise exactly how could the image is in terms of timing

Great - if slightly distubing - image

wow what a fantastic action shot! Love the colours, sharpness and motion blur.
My only negative comment being the fact that the gun actually seems to get in the way somewhat, perhaps a slightly better angle would have helped in separating the person from the object.

All in All a fantastic capture!
