I can see how this shot will have "love it or hate it" thoughts. Personally I love it. I think the blurred person allows the viewers eye to directly focus on the pitcher thus creating an almost natural frame within the frame. The only thing I could wish for is a bit more room at the head. As always your exposures are just dead on. You are definitely a photographer of many talents Wilson. A great blend of genre's using both traditional and new techniques but no matter what never losing sight of what photography is about. Conveying a message and putting the viewer in your mind. Great stuff man...
Thanks for your feedback, CHAD: Very glad you like it. HOWARD: Thanks, Howard. Indeed it's a love-hate thing with the framing and dark shadow and all. Don't worry, there are more to choose from! ^_^ DAVE: Thank you very much for your insights and such thorough high praises. Now, if only someone can peel me off the ceiling. ^_^ Likewise, you're the master at this craft with your very own style, attention to detail, and incredible wit. I'm sure I speak for majority, if not all, when saying we continually look forward to seeing what you come up with image after image! KEN: Very glad you like this! COLIN: Thanks, Colin. Well put. SARAH: Very appreciative of your comment. Wilson ^_^
Gotta love baseball! Great job, shows an integral part of the game. Wonderful framing. congrats! cg
It is nice to see sports photos in an artistic form. It has been said that baseball is truly the thinking man's game. Your entire series has been music to the eyes of real baseball fans. This is a great "peak mental action" shot. Well done. JH
Nice frozen moment.
I think that you took an artistic chance by leaving in the blurred and blue form on the right. However, it's not a problem for me. Without it, there would be a vacuum to the right and not enough perspective. A matter of taste, I suppose but I'm with Dave. I like it!
This one doesn't work for me. The blurred player or form on the right is, as I am sure you already know, too distracting.
I really like this...something different!
Good strong presence due to the telephoto effect and the blurred guy in the foreground.

I also like the blurred butt! Nice perspective view of both the pitcher and the anonymous rear! The way the light is hitting the pitcher causes me to look at him first. His isolation is perfect, makes me feel like I'm right there on the field when I realize that's a blurred rear end!! Nice job!
Jayme, very glad you like it! ^_^

Wonderful! As good as any of the other action shots. And perfectly cropped!!
