I looked through yor impressive gallery. I saw 27 images all very good! Some are variations of the same. I will look at them closer and try to give my feedback but I think your work speaks for itself. Do not fear submitting any 10 of these.

In a heartbeat Mike...I'm on it.

baseball 39, baseball 98, brickfb 4, f8football 38, softball 15, softball 53, f8football 25, bball 9, chwjv 12 and dsc_9974.

Your stuff is all great, membership is no sweat. I wish you the finest in your desire to be a member of SS, it's a great resource for sports action shooters.

Edited to add the barclay shot, I missed that one and it's great.

My picks:

4870, barclay 001, baseball 69, brickfb 4, DSC_0084, DSC_3528, f8football 11, f8football 25 1, softball 15, softball 2.

These are all sharp, well exposed and have great action, (as all your work is), so I looked for great light, intense expression, and clean background to make my picks. Best of luck with your application.

Mike:

tons of good options for submission and the cafe has done a good job narrowing your choice. Do remember that it seems you need to have good detailed captions for your submissions, especially as its a pj/sports group.

Cheers

Ok - These guys and gals did the work you asked for - I simply can not pick any 10 - These are all FANTASTIC photographs! I loved every one of them...

My absolute FAVORITE of the all??? Softball 15 - That is one VERY VERY VERY cool picture! You did a fantastic job!

Baseball 39...That has got to be my all time favorite. Goodness he just so darn cute, and that pic is a pic of a lifetime:>))))
I think all of your images are top notch.
Tough to pick ...

Do you have a sponsor? If you do, that makes things sooooooo much easier. It is very hard to get in if you apply without a sponsor, but I think with your portfolio you could do it.

You have no worries. All of these are super and it makes the top ten list tough to decide...I dug through them for quite awhile. In no particular order (because they are all great) I picked these 10:

Barclay001
Baseball 39
DSC3386
f8football 25
f8soccer 185
softball 53
f8football 38
f8soccer 1
brickfb 4
softball 15

Good luck (you won't need it) these images speak for themselves....your as good as in.

Mike, as Wembley said, you need to ensure that you have complete, accurate cutlines as well. I'd be happy to review your cutlines if you'd like. Post them here, PM or email me.

As for the pics, you obviously have terrific images and from seeing much of your work here, a distinct style of the up-close-and-personal "sportrait."

But, in a portfolio, I think this can work against you. The images, while ALL good, start to look repetitive. I don't think you'll have any problem whatsoever getting into SS, but I would consider adding a little variety. For example; a really wide shot, an extreme close up, maybe an excited crowd shot, huddled with coach on sideline, etc.

Anyway, just food for thought...

Here are my sure-fire picks in no particular order:

39
brickfb4
CHWJV 12
DSC_0084
F8football25-1
softball15
and maybe the swimmer
