    Lovely composition and good control of exposure - especially like the movement of the tide.

    A location I get to occasionally and seeing your images makes me want to get there more often. From Inverness I usually go West, but maybe it is time to head down the A9.

    Great work.

    Great timing to get this shot.

    Some pointers to help do even better next time....

    1. A faster shutter speed will remove blur ... both in terms of the speed of the action and camera shake. You could use a slightly larger aperture (say f8 or even f5.6 ... but watch the depth of field) or even up the iso. I would be looking for nearer 1/500th of a second or even 1/1000th if possible.

    2. Mount the camera on a tripod (this helps eliminates camera shake) and use a cable release (allows you to watch the bigger picture and get the timing right). Cricket is a sport where tripod mounting works well as the key points are often fairly fixed ( i.e. batsman, bowler, wicket keeper)

    3. Carefully check your exposure - in this shot I think your camera has been fooled into overexposure due to the dark background. Try metering off the players face (or use the back of your own hand - in the same light) to get it right. The background may be underexposed, but that isn't so important.

    Great B&W image. Love the strong contrast and position of the figure........ Just a shame the horizon is not quite level.
