Based on some of the shots I've seen in the sports forum threads, there will be a lot of great photos and ideas for this challenge. I'm not sure how this one will score, but I thought it would be fun to enter and I don't think there will be any others like it. At the very least, CJ had a blast and so did I while shooting it.

Crop, Re-size, Brightness, Contrast, Sharpen.

I love this shot! My viszla mix, Allie and I are members of the Dallas Dog & Disc club and compete in canine frisbee. We love it!

Very, very nice! Arguably, "dog frisbee" might not qualify as a sport. To me, though, this image definitely shows the essence of sport--energetic physical movement, intense focus on the object of the game by the player(s). The action is beautifully caught in this image and the composition and colour are excellent. We can feel the dog's intent concentration and see the muscle strain. Great timing for this shot and great use of light and shadow. Yes, I like this one a lot!

Great action shot. Looks like the dogs posing. The reflection of the eye looks like its looking right at the camera. Love the beautiful shadow on the grass. The colors of the dog really bright forward out of the picture. Beautiful composition.

hold that pose while I grab my camera! Nice action take. Colors, focus and lighting are super. If I could have one wish it would be to have keft the whole shadow as well...still good job.9

This is a fun shot, I love the shadow! Great catch getting him off the ground... did he JUST catch the frisbee? I would have liked to have seen maybe a tiny bit more detail in the white but it's not a huge deal... pretty good composition. I wouldn't have included the border, but I'm not big on borders. Nice clear action shot, good job.

This is a fun shot- I'm always amazed at what dogs can do! Excellent background - really lets the focus remain on the subject, yet complements it. Also think you made an excellent border selection. Very good shot - good luck!

Nice timing on this capture. Usually pet action shots are more like snapshots, but this one overcomes that. You can't even see the wires holding up the dog. :)

Good action shot, although a bit blurry. I'd have liked to see a bit more space at the bottom, at least the entire shadow.

Good action shot and great catch! I think a lower angle helps shots like this though.

excellent photo, must have taken precise timing.

Maybe a little tighter crop on the top and left and a little lower on the bottom to include the entire shadow?

great capture but i feel the border is overwhelming
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I find the frame is a bit much for such an action shot. I would have used a simpler border. Nice shot of a nice dog!

A little motin blur. But what do you expect from a great motion capture. The shadow gives it a 3-D effect. Good composition. 10

Great action shot ... nice capture. I think the shadow adds a lot of interest.

The dog appears to be a bit out of focus for a stop motion shot. Probably would have looked better if the focus didn't occur on the grass background. But I love the dog with the frisbee.

Wow...Great shot (and good catch lol) I'm sure we'll be seeing this one close to the top! The only thing that I don't really care for in this shot is the shadow...and I'm sure that couldn't be helped.

quality is poor, but noone can fault your subject and it's pose. 10/10 for that.
