Typically, you'll get more replies by posting directly on the site, rather than having everyone go through a link.

This is a decent capture, but baseball action pics are usually lacking without the ball in the frame. Without the ball in the frame you should be looking to capture expressions. When I shoot batters, I shoot them from the opposite field....1st base line for righties, and 3rd base side for lefties. Also, although the batter is the main element, the catcher, umpire and person in the background are clearly in focus and do nothing but take attention from the batter. You're colors are also a bit washed out.

Thanks for the critique. I agree that more would see if I attached directly to the message, but I am having a hard time resizing the image. When you say colors are washed out, could you let me know what you see?

thanks

jeff

Washed out is probably a bit harsh. I should say that you could use a bit more saturation and contrast to make the image pop a bit more.

Thanks for the input. Honestly, I dont think your critique is harsh at all. I am new to all of this and need this input to get better. I could use good post processing software, but not even sure where to start. I will try and make adjustments to the image.

Thanks for the input. Jeff
