Thanks guys.

First one doesn't do anything for me. In the second one, I could go either way about his eyes not being visible. Nice color and sharpness though.

I like the first one a lot. It shows the power of the runner as he's moving towards second. He plowing through the groomed dirt as it's falling off his cleats. The pile of dirt behind his left foot that he left behind after he planted his foot and then pushed forward. Nice photo.

As for the second, it would have been nice to see his eyes, but as was posted above, the color, along with the sharpness in both pictures really stand out. The dirt pellets (grain) mid air, complete the photo.

That is what I see/saw in the photos, let me explain; it's the instant in time, the precise moment when the runner gets the sign and takes off for second base; it's not about the runner, who he is, seeing the name on the jersey or his whole body; it's about that psychological game between the pitcher, base runner and first baseman.

And that is what the second image is intended to be, so no face or player's eyes are really needed in the image (but that is just my opinion, not everyone can see the 'deeper' story behind the images.)

If the shot was of a specific player diving back to first base than I would agree that it's not a very good image without the player's eyes, but in this case it works for me. If I could have shot it as just the hand of the player diving without a head I would have.

I think the first one is a cracker. Its a true editorial style image and not a tight crop cookie cutter image that only appeals to parents of young kids. Well done and i could easily see this get a run in a major BB magazine.

First one's great; looks like a Nike ad waiting to happen. I agree with the earlier comment, though, on number 2 falling flat with the eyes missing...or, if you were going for the 'dive back to first', then the base should be included in the shot. Either way, some of the context of that image is missing, IMO.

I liked the direction of the pics until I saw the full uniform. Nowhere near to rooting for SF
