Sports Forum Challenge #30: "Point of Impact"

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by ToToPhoto, Aug 4, 2008.

  1. This week's challenge will be "Point of Impact" This can anytime there is contact between two or more objects or people. This can be two players checking, bat on ball, foot connecting with the ball, ball hitting player. Anything where there is some sort of contact.

    __________________________________________________ _______________


    As always, here’s how the Sports Forum Challenge works….

    Each week we will have a theme to which everyone who chooses to participate must submit a photo(s). If someone opts to post more than one image, the first image is your official entry.

    Each winner will have the opportunity then to select the new challenge and pick the winner for their challenge.

    You have till Sunday to enter your photo at which point (Sunday night of each week) we can pick a winner.

    Here are a couple examples of what I am looking for...

    Tires hitting the ground

    Hi Tony,

    Do the submitted photos have to be taken during the challenge period, or can we reach back from last season since it's summer right now?
     
  3. I think anything within the last year is ok.

  11. Frank, thats an awesome shot. what were you shooting with?
     
  12. This is from last year. It's a nano second or two after "point of impact" so maybe it doesn't count. That and it's really not a very good image, but...

    These two girls collided and smacked heads. One had her front teeth go through her lower lip requiring numerous stitches and the other ended up with a number of stitches in her forehead due to the other girls teeth.

    Happened to get this over the weekend and seems to fit this week's challenge. The race boat ended up upside down when it finally came to a stop but I did see the driver come out of the water and he seemed to be okay. Probably was sore the next day though!
