Unfortunately I do not know what happened next. Did he land on his feet? Did he pass the ball before he went down? All a mystery. But I was thrilled when I saw this capture!
This was from one of my first outings with the new 5DMIII (with 24-70F2.8L), sitting directly under the basket. No flash used. (1/1000s, ISO:8000).

    Morning neighbor! What a fabulous action capture, Michelle. I love the intensity in the moment and the unleft answers to the questions it brings.

You sure captured the action of the moment Michelle, the look on his face shows the intensity of that frozen moment in time!

My guess is he made the basket and then hung off it like an acrobat!

Fabulous capture Mickey!!

Great job w/this capture as shooting action under the GYM lights does not always work out so well .

Your enjoying the NEW TOY ;O)

Wonderful action shot, Michelle! Great detail and expression. You mean you really didn't remember what happened next? You weren't the statistician as well? Great job!

Great capture Michelle, looks like your putting your new camera through it paces. How do you like the new camera, did you buy the new 24-70F2.8 to go with it.

I was out shooting landscapes with my MKlll and was thrilled with the results. You certainly captured the moment in this image.

You are really excelling with your new toy, Michelle! This is a fabulous, fabulous basketball action capture - you caught him perfectly in mid air and I just love the expression on his face! Nice work! Unfortunately, we no longer have season BB tickets, and when we did, they were certainly NOT under the basket!
