I like the tension in his stance as he gets ready to run.

Nice shot - really doesn't look like a homerun - more like a basehit to right...

Is this Kyle Russell? Despite Nebraska having a shut out against Augi I'm sure I'll be seeing your Longhorns again at the CWS here in Omaha. Hopefully along with my Chreighton Blue Jays. Very much doubt Big Red will make it. Now for the photograph. Like the composition with the leading line of the batter, like the runner coming in as well. Good shutter speed, sharp focus and great color. Good luck on this submission, and bring your camera to Omaha in June. Lots of great shooting at the Blatt.

Who is the home run king? the runner? the batter? the umpire? I am not convinced that there was even a home run? where is the ball? convince me.

comp could be tighter to help eliminate the bg more, after all, it is about the athlete and not the fans. color excellent, dof ok, emotional value poor, good texture, ok light, over all boring

Captures it all with the background complimenting the foreground. Great!
