Taken while on assignment for the paper. This is shot in a very dark gym. Two AB800's powered by a Mini Vegabond bounced off the ceiling.

I had other shots that were staged for posters, but wanted to submit a real live sports image.

I love how the guy in the bottom seems to be looking at your lens, Matt as if he is trying to tell you "I am finished", you can go ahead and document it now. Great timing!

Matt - a great set of images. Well done and congrats on the top 10, although I sure expected this one to finish higher....

Extremely difficult place to shoot. Excellent image and control of your gear. WD on TT.

THis was one of my high scorers, precisely because it feels so real.

Very engaging. I feel like he really wants, actually needs my help. Perhaps I'm his coach, etc....
Nice shot though, truly engaging. Great colour, sharpness, timing, boken, depth of field and comp. Being picky, I would like to see a more level horizon. Being picky...

Overall an Excellent image!

Very nice. The depth of field sets up the context without being in the way.

Great perspective. Love the look on his face.

Great expression here, almost scared, and that is, to me, rather an essential part of this challenge. Well done and good luck
