I'm sure we all have shots like this, where the person doing the action is very intently focused on the task at hand. If there is already a thread of such, please point me to it, otherwise, I'd love to see some more.

Here are two examples of what I mean to get us started.

~~ Focus ~~

Love this shot. It's a unicorn shot for me; always trying to get one.

It is one of my favorite volleyball shots. The background makes it special. I've gotten other shots that were close to that good but it's remarkable how slight changes in the angles will diminish the impact of an image.
