This photo was taken while walking forward at a steady pace, triggering the camera once per step. I probably took around 100 shots, with in-camera ~5:1 screening to end up with 20 or so to choose from in the computer.

It's a good picture, but I don't get the relevance to sports with a suit on...

outside the box (which I adore!) but the technical details distract from this shot with the shoe/pants not being deadon focused and the out of focus grass/flower creating a sense of vertigo/spinning disorienting feel

LOL, great title! Shame the focus isn't all there but I love this pic.

Sorry, I am not going to go as far as to say DNMC. However, I do think that this is a lazy attempt to shoe horn something into a challenge just because you can.

I am not convinced that this is sports related. Not going to waste my time on a good critique.

Out of the box. Nice motion. Good luck

I think this is really stretching to fit into the challenge title - but that said I think it's a surprisingly pleasing shot.

I like the movement on the grass, and the postioning of the dandelion is essential for a splash of colour, I wonder whether the shoe should have been more in focus though ?

DNMC imho.

I used to get shots like this every now and then on my video camera, first time i seen it from a still camera though.
