Kobe's MVP hands down. This is awesome Wilson. Can you give us more details on what you did to achieve this effect? I think what would have been cool is if you did some selective coloring. Leave the color in Nash and have everything else B&W.

Howard Dion
Alright! Blink of an eye! Good one.

John Seward
Nothing more needs be said. The NBA might come a callin'! They could use you.

John Marco
Handheld? Indoor handheld? this is great!

Wilson I know absolutely nothing about basketball or it's players, but I do see that this image is really creative. He looks rather "ghostly". Your creative choice to desaturate the color, the gray motion blurs, etc. My only complaint.....I want to see the rest of his left leg & foot. The positioning of his arms shuttles my eyes right down to the ball, but the action stops there because he lacks the other foot. Maybe that was the point, because he looks like he's being blocked rather aggressively. I can only imagine how difficult it might be to capture the action of a basketball game, so I am amazed you were able to capture anything at all, especially such action :) But.... I really do love your creative color choices, very different & unique :)Maybe instead of "Slashin" Nash it should be "Flashin" Nash ? LOL

Excellent! Very beautiful. I agree with Jayme - except that I don't have any complaint =) The crop is great as it is.

Wils, This is a very creative image and not something that you'll see in the sports section of any newspapers. The bias on PN against sports images extends to even creative pictures such as this. God bless you for following your artistic instincts without regard for the expected rating bias.

Interesting BG., what makes the image for me.

Jason Williams
Awesome shot and composition, nice work, great tones. The original is also awesome. I love the sense of motion in the posting!

Jon Thornton

Awesome and "flashy" capture. Such a tough shot to capture~ and you've done it beautifully. I confess...I have a soft spot for one of our own "Island grown" talents and so do admire Steve's tenacity, hard work and humbleness. He is a true star and deserves receiving the MBA...twice! Cheers~ Iren

"Slashing Nash," Phoenix Suns guard on the move Steve Nash, NBA's 2005 MVP, having another solid year and leads MVP vote again this year. Competition will be from Lakers' Kobe Bryant and Miami's Dwyane Wade. Feel free to vote or give your thoughts.
