Nice shots, everyone.

Phil: Nice action shot! I love how the second baseman is hurdling the baserunner.

Maureen: I'm a sucker for birds in flight photos. You captured this pelican very well.

Pixelbasher: I don't know much about cricket (I assume that is the game being played), but I love how you captured the ball. I also think the kid in the background with his arms up adds so much to the photo. Looks like they are having fun.

Don: Great shot. The panning makes the viewer feel the action. The faces of the runners shows the intensity. Excellent work!

This week's winner is Don! Take it away!

Didn't enter this week as I rarely take action shots and was too lazy to go out and find one, but your shot, Don, is a good illustration of why it's sometimes better to shoot action with a slow shutter speed instead of 1/1000 or more as I usually do. Thanks for the great example.:)
