Great sports shot! Sharp, excellent use of DOF. Can you say 'pulled groin'? Great job!!

A very intense shot. No doubt that the ball is the center of attention here. 10

Great action shot! You caught the action at just the right moment!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

that looks really painful!! Really good focus though, with the two players tack sharp and the rest faded into the background blur, keeps our attention on the action!

Very awesome capture! And two 'B's to boot! :-P Love everything about this shot, the blurred players in the background add to the scene but don't try and steal the thunder from the action you captured. You must've been sitting quite close or have a really nice lens. Another action shot from Ridergal? In any case, one of my top 5 picks this week :)

Great action shot I like the way you've captured both expressions

Superb action shot, but needs the title to make it fit the challenge. My first thought would have been 'football' rather than 'ball'. The dof is spot on. 8

Nice action shot with good focus and colours. Shame the main subject is so far off to the left, bit it's still good.
