The action in this shot is great, but I'm having a tough time figuring out what's going on. There's a lot of stuff in focus, and it's tough to isolate the action. Obviously, a slightly faster shutter speed would have been ideal.

great catch of action.. did you enlarge this from a small area of the photo? seems out of focus or something. otherwise a cool shot.

Focus is of utmost importants. ok picture. better if in focus

The focus being off makes this picture a little less effective than it could be, I think. It looks like it is a bright day there, plenty of light, so could you ahve used a faster shutter speed at all? karmat

A little closer crop might help this.

wished you had a better focus and faster shutter speed. this shot could easily tell a different story than the title had indicated.

Great action shot a little bright and out of focus but great stop action. That fense looks close and in the line of fire. Makes for an interesting shot. Well done. PTL7

Love the action here. I wish the background was not in quite such sharp focus though. Good catch though.

ISO800 on a 602?
Nice capture, but the lack of detail (look at the grass and net) is disturbing.
