Tammie,

Not a bad capture - I'm with you, I love to see dirt fly. Having the ground in the image (and thus presumably more flying dirt) would have made for a better image. BUt, I also understand stuff happens and you sometimes have to react quickly. So, the image is only about half as affective to me as it could have been. The good news is, it's reasonably sharp and good color and great job of freezing the ball. All in all, good timing to capture SOMETHING. It's frustrating, though, isn't it - how much actually has to go right? But your instincts were good - and that's a huge positive - hopefully next time you'll "luck out" and have the lens zoomed out when you have to grab and shoot. Keep 'em coming!

Out of curiosity, what camera/lens?
