Would have been fantastic to have the ball in the shot as well but nevertheless a great capture. Love that it is in bw.

Cheers! The boulle was in the shot, but it was the other side of a tree, so I cropped it out... So-so..

Great! I like the subject's expression and, of course, the hand gesture. It perfectly reveals the subject's concentration on the boulle's flight, even though it isn't visible. From a technical point of view, I think that while the player's face is correctly lit, there are some excessive highlights, particularly on his right hand. Similarly, the second log and middle-ground could be toned down. Otherwise, what an excellent action shot. Cheers,
