TEMPORADA DE BEISBOL PROFESIONAL N VENEZUELA.-
What an action shot well done
Great action shot.
grt action shot good timing
Your focus is a little bit soft or your crop is too severe - I know I'm too critical - sorry.
What is the cloud of dust at the lower right-hand side of the photo caused by?
I'm trying to work out which base we're at in this photo. I'm assuming it's third base, the guy in orange has just been called safe and that you were shooting from somewhere behind the first base line. Can I also assume that the throw to third was from the catcher behind home plate? If not I'm confused a little by the position of the players. That probably says more about my lack of familiarity with shooting baseball.
To be even more critical - doubly sorry - I think the shot would have worked better if it had been taken just a little earlier, so that we could see the glove open (rather than closed and the hand angled downwards to trap the ball), and the batter/runner desperately trying to get to a safe position. This looks like it's just a little after the peak action that you might have covered.
Your colours are nice and bright and it's good that we can see the players' faces. It's a great capture of the batter/runner's face as he turns sideways too. I'd love to see some more of your baseball images and envy your chance to shoot it. The British league games always seem to clash with the British American football games I shoot, and are played in parks, with the resulting cluttered and messy backgrounds (cars, baby-buggies, ice-cream vans and 'Auntie Mabel' in her deckchair).
