for what it is worth, this was my favorite of the challenge. I gave it a rare 10 (I'm *very* stingy with my 10s...)

congrats on a great moment captured!

For young ones that's some pretty good form on the part of both the runner and the defenders -- composition worked out great.

I love the expression on #24. Nice colors and very sharp.

Excellent shot but I find it looks a tad to oversharpened. Great choice in DOF and the colors are outstanding. I really like how you've managed to capture the players faces and expressions. Well done and keep up the good work in 2005. <8>

With the exception of the playground set in the background, this could easily be a capture of pro players just based on the movement and facial expressions (of course they'd have to grow a few feet too! :) Great capture.

Good timing on this shot. The look on his face is priceless and goes with the well-chosen title.

oh, what a moment you have captured. you really should consider setting up some kind of service where you can make a couple bucks off of prints. i'm willing to bet no other parents on the sidelines are shooting anything near this, and they'd all be willing to pay for a good action shot. thanks for sharing this, and good luck in the challenge!

Great action shot! I love that all of the players are in focus, while the background is nicely out of focus. Very vibrant colors. Who won??

DID #24 take him down? What happened next?
01/18/2005 09:20:18 AM
very nice sports shot - well frozen. I would have used a smaller aperture though to blur the background into something unrecognizable.
01/17/2005 07:29:47 PM
not enough emphasis on the "determined" kid
01/17/2005 03:36:21 AM
Great action, you don't need the left half of the frame. 7.5

The deternination on little 24s face turns this from a good sports shot to a great one. Nice use of color, great composition, and really sharp stop action.
