Which One?

Last night I shot my first softball game of the year - Destrehan at Byrd. I got a lot of decent photos, but my favorites came when the left fielder dove for the ball right in front of me and missed. I had a tough time deciding between two photos for the paper - one where if you look closely you can see she isn't going to make the catch and another where it is quite obvious she wasn't successful. I chose the second one because of her facial expression and body language. Was I right?

Wow! My shot choices are much easier to make: blurry or in focus, head showing or head cut off... you know that sort of thing.

no contest...bottom...her body is all twisted, legs sprawled, painful look on her face...the agony of defeat. Nice shot. Bet you were chimping on THAT one!!!!!

This is one of those times where you just have to sit the players down and explain they can't be dropping balls like that.

I agree, you definitely made the right choice. Great capture.
