Tough competition this week but this one is still my favorite of the week. I knew this one was yours. You have taken some fantastic sports shots. Good luck with future challenges.

Really captures the action.

It always seemed like a dumb rule that you can't use the backhand side of the stick.

I love the action-- but the lips on alll the players look dark--

Despite the blurring (possibly because of low light) this shot captures what is necessary - the competitive spirit of hockey. The key elements are sharp and crisp with good expressions of determination on the faces, good composition and interesting DOF. This deserves to do well.

Good capture, with the ball being just off the ground, good work on the DOF, I took some similar shots that just did nt work. Your shot is clear and showing movement, not easy, well done.

Finally someone included field hockey! So often we are forgotten about, yet its one of the greatest girls sports! Great sharpness, it's hard when they're going so fast. Really nice colors too.

GREAT shot. very good. composed very well. nice eye and timing. the dof is good too. the facial expressions are cool - the lead girl has determination to score on her face, the defender behind has a gritty determination look to steal the ball away - and the out of focus girl trailing behind the play has a *huh....oh no* look on her face. nice work.

Good action - seems very contrasty and saturated though - was that something you were trying for ?
