Catch the Ball !

By pentaxpete  
THIS is the pic chosen for use very LARGE on the back page of today's 'Brentwood Gazette' newspaper -- I put a shot on yesterday I though they would use but they did not ! -- Ephotozine member commented on the movement and said I should have upped the ISO to 1600 but here it is at 400 ISO and the movement 'adds' to the picture so the Chief Photographer says ! I t was all 'manual focus' as I only have two 'auto-focus' lenses for my digital and the rest are all 'film camera manual lenses' -- well, I have been using 'manual' for over 40 years now for sport !
PS -- Just checked with the newspaper one and it is SHARPER than what ephotozine has done to my upload !

As the previous critic referred to here I think this is a much better shot (based on the proliferation of faces) but, accepting your Chief Photographer will have a more experienced eye than I, I still think the movement blur distracts from the image slightly. I also think that the off-level horizon is a slight distraction, as are the two spectators.

That said, for an exposure shot at 1/125th I think you've captured an exceptional photo. Smile
