First of all, I love the just-behind-the-fence vantage point here. Or maybe the vantage point is the batter's -- ball racing toward him, distant faces, slightly blurred. The tilt here is incidental yet very necessary. But like so many other entries here, this one doesn't make me cock my head. The tilt here adds to the image, it isn't the entire point of the image. For that reason, this nails the challenge. (And I hope he nailed the ball.)

I don't always like foreground bokeh, but knowing that we are peering through the fence just adds to the sense of the baseball game. Terrific stop action. The red shirts and helmet all tie together nicely against that vivid green background. This is really good. It's like a window into early summertime. :) 8

Love the motion blur in this, the red is striking but you don't really have a horizon.

nicely framed.. i like the effect of the greens and the reds... i think, this would be better if it's a little more sharp and crisp.. still, 8/10 for me
