    Hi Newman
I like the 3D effect. Was this one in the 8 frame burst?

Hi Richard,
Not in this case! I think I got 5 frames of this play. I was looking at another receiver until I located where the ball was going. Then I had to pull a fast one to get on these guys ... one of those, "it just happened" shots!
I wish one of them had a finger on the ball, but many people seem to like it anyway.

Hi Newman,
I just wanted to say that we were robbed at this game! Go Irish! :)

This photo makes it look like "The one that got away" and the expressions are great...kinda like "Oh sh**! I can't believe I am missing this one"
I love it. Great grab. Sometimes you just have to be quick on your feet. (No pun intended.)

Newman I shoot a lot of sports myself. This is probably one of the best shots per difficulty factor that I have ever seen. Great work. I was wondering if you could brief my site amd lend a helping hand on my photos. I will look for your next course in Minneapolis.

This is one of the best shots I have seen in Sports Photography! Because both players were diving/reaching for the ball
shows madd thirst/dedication for this game. You were in the right place at the right time and capture such a "CLEAR" shot... I guess this is what they call a
"million dollar" shot! - Congrads!!! ~ Ant.
