I agree, distraction is not that big. For me, my eyes get drawn directly to the tag and the ball
in the glove. Great shot. What's the pink stuff? Looks like cotton candy or insulation.

The pink stuff is soft nylon string embedded in the ground. It is used to mark the location of the edge of the batter's boxes for the field crew when they are lining the field.

Faces, peak action, ball, tag being made. Your timing was perfect on the shot. I agree with others that the lady behind the fence being there is a minor distraction, but as shot, you got a winner there! Nice job.

Thanks for the comments. The lens is a 70-200 f2.8L. I have looked at this picture a few times:D and did not see the girl in the dugout as a distraction, just part of the action.

A lot of folks don't realize that softball fields have fairly close backstops, a lot of which are galvanized chain link fence. With the bleachers right behind the fence, it is hard to get away from a distracting background. Sometimes, even shooting at f/2.8 will not be enough to blur out the background. One thing that helps is the focal length of the lens. A 300 or 400 will help a lot when you shoot wide open. That helps a lot to soften the background.

I like to shoot at f/3.2 if possible to help with the really shallow depth of field. This helps my keeper rate.

Excellent shot. My guess is that you were in the dugout or laying down. Either way, great capture.
