I like shots like this, that show a bit of drama within the game. The umpire poised to make the call, the baseman waiting on the ball.
A great shot technically, but also very interesting to look at.

:biggrin:

You sound like a friend of mine. No matter how good the shot is, how perfect the framing, the focus, the exposure...he still finds something he wished he'd done better.
I mean..this is a really good shot. If the worst thing you can find is wishing the ball was frozen better, then that should tell you something.
Then again, I guess we all want to improve, no matter what level we are at, skill wise.

I concur. I think the best sports shots include either an implicit or an explicit frame of reference that leads to anticipation...what happens next? Randy did REAL GOOD here :).

Just out of curiousity, Randy, with the 180 you must have had a sizeable crop...what camera were you using?
