Eye On The Ball

This is just beautiful Nina. I love the freeze frame action, the way the ball is hanging in the air, the bat back to hit a home run, but its that concentration on the little boys face, the way that we can see is eyes are on the ball. That is some beautiful and spectacular camera work dear friend.
Have a blessed day. #1497836
