Thanks, Wils ... it's always fun to get a little peek into the personal lives of our "friends" here on PN!! He looks like a great kid!
Great shot, Wilson, and perfect title!
Jayme Hall - Bardstown, KY
Really nice use of the line. The stance is perfect!
6/6 Great catch. I kinda want a strong diagonal on the ground to create a triangle with the line created by his back and arm, but that's just being fussy, a different angle might destroy the effectiveness of the pose. Poised and taut.
Wilson I go back and forth concerning the blurred foreground. Can't decide if I like it or it bothers me. I'll visit again later.....
Great shot! The expression of the kids face is captured with perfection and conveys his desire very well. Nice work. 6/6
my two cents... Great composition and color (as always). The blurred line is enough to lead the eye toward the boy, but not heavy enough to distract (IMO). To me, the poised foot is the perfect hint of impending action...
Very nice 6/6
Good job. Don't change a thing. The third base foul line adds depth.6/7
I think you could crop out some of the blur at the bottom. It's distracting me by leading my eyes away from the boy. I think if you took about 1/5 of the bottom away, it would help. Just my opinion... Interesting perspective and I bet the boy LOVES this picture!

Your son? Hope he got the run! :-)
6/6 by me Great shot but, the blurred line in the front bothers me a bit. I know you did this, but how did it look cropped?
Wils Now that I see the picture smaller, I understand what you mean about leaving in the stripe. That got lost on me when viewing larger. Love the expression too. Nice clarity of the subject. Your son? Also like the colors.
Thanks so far... Thanks so far for everyone's input. I shot this wide open to put focus on him, and de-emphasize the busy background of neighborhood near the ballpark. I'm afraid if I were to render the foul line sharp, the background will also be sharp and very busy. In addition to composition sake, I also framed him at top right corner to strengthen the notion of a third base. Thanks again. ^_^
"The Rest of the Team" Might as well introduce you all to the rest of his team.
Wonderful capture of the tension of the sport. I like the OOF baseline in the foreground, personally, so I completely agree with your DOF. His stance is perfect, especially the near hand and uplifted foot. Very intense focus in his expression, as well!
"Stealing Home?" Thoughts? "Stealing Home?" At least that's what was on his mind at the moment. Feedback's welcome. Thanks. ^_^
