I bought a soccer ball and a net ($30 total), then I went to the public park and attached the net to the goal. Prefocused and had my brother do the throwing, 20 takes, this one was the last. I never noticed the two birds when I took the photo, but I don't mind them being there.

Congrats on a cool pic. Really does give a sense of the sport. But I have one question, how did you get so much motion blur at 1/320 sec?

I thought this would finish in 4th or 5th place, so "Thank you very much" to everyone for their comments, votes, and for giving me my second ribbon. I guess the $30 I invested into executing this idea paid off! i'm glad you liked it.

Don't know if you planned the ball between the clouds - but it's perfect. The blurriness of the ball and net is also super. Perhaps a bit centered, but easily fixed by cropping some from the left.

Nice action shot. Well done.

Wow, I'd like to see a 'how did I do that' at the end of the challenge. first thought was football (soccer) but maybe volleyball? I may be wrong but not sure the birds I'd have kept the birds in the shot (9)

10!

06/05/2004 01:13:25 AM
Love this one, dammit it looks like 2 birds in the left cloud which is just putting me off a tiny bit...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2004 10:50:45 PM
wow, great action shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2004 04:53:39 PM
Love the movement and perspective here! Very clear. Just noticed you even got a couple of seagulls in the shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow, great relfexes on that shutter button finger! This successfully captures the FEELING of the sport, which is difficult to do. 9

I tried to do exactly this idea, but didn't have the cooperation of a perfect blue sky with lovely clouds. This is nice, my implementation was with more motion trail, but this works because you get clear motion on the net. -7

06/04/2004 12:22:14 AM
great motion, clouds are awesome
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/03/2004 07:12:46 PM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/03/2004 04:56:03 PM
This is way cool. Great compositon. Nice and rich colours. I predict a ribbon 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/03/2004 11:32:35 AM
Excellent action shot! I love the blue sky and composition. I think the lighting could be better on the ball, but that would be hard to control, wouldn't it?!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/02/2004 09:32:51 PM
Awesome shot- love the stop action and the movement of the net- should win! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/02/2004 08:56:48 PM
Nice shot, and perfect shutter speed. The movement of the ball is blurred, yet some of the net is still sharp! I like it! And theres some birds in there too. lol
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/02/2004 07:31:45 PM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
