Cuba's national passtime

By wraggster
An image I captured of an afternoon match of baseball, played out on a public field just West of Havana, Cuba. After a couple of failed attempts to photograph the game without causing a crowd of spectators to gather around me, I decided on a candid shot using a telephoto lens. It took me a while to compose with the batter, a couple of fielders and the impatient batting team bench in the shot together however, the result hopefully goes some way to evoking the sense of dedication and enthusiasm the people of Cuba have for their adopted national sport. Any feedback thankfully accepted. Cheers.

nice action shot!, however it may work better if you could see the expression on the face of the batter and the eagerly awaiting people on the team bench. Click
