Here is one I shot while I was hanging in the end zone. Perfect shot I thought because the receiver was right in front of me. But I shot just before the ball came into his arms! Dang it!

Thanks Sir! Wish I would have waited a split second longer to start and I could have caught the shot with the ball coming in his arms.

Figure well shown against the blurred background. I do find the lean of the building a bit off putting though.

That's much more like it!

I did think that the crooked horizon was a bit of a distraction. I won't bother with a mod. but I have straightened it and to be honest, I think it suits the image better as it is.
Presumably, this has beem cropped, in which case you could have left a bit more space on the LHS.
It's still the best yet though.
Well done.

Bren.

I believe that the background is crooked because of how I was shooting from one knee. Being in a cast due to ankle surgery at the moment (next 2 weeks) I tend to lean to my left quite a bit. But not an excuse just a minor set back for the moment. I will allow for more room but i caught this one when the receiver was literally 6ft in front of me in the corner of the endzone. I did crop it a bit due to the background distractions I wanted to make as clean as I possibly could. More to come!

Yes mate, that's much better. Well done.

You've got the shutter speed nice and fast now to freeze the action. Brilliant.

Now, next step is.................................... get the ball as well Tongue

Keep on going, you're getting there
