This is a favorite I shot at a tournament so I love it but not sure if it has what it takes to be a comp sports print.

Hi Noelle;

I don't know if it can merit. However, I love the feel and energy of this image. I would definitely make a wall sample. Either way, get signed releases from the parents.

Here is how I saw it this morning. I've played down the boy on defense, made it black and white, and added a slight motion trail to accentuate his movement. I call it "Driving For The Hoop". I hope it helps give you some inspiration.

Thanks Craig, what I would like to know is why it may or may not merit? Can anyone else share their insight?

unless you do something like Craig did to the photo it most likely would not merit. The main problem is the focus is on the defensive person and the person with the ball is not at sharp so adding the motion blur and taking the back person is about the only way it might merit

Thank you Stewart, that is exactly the help I need. Not that I do not appreciate what Craig did I just need to know why so I can learn. ;)

Hi Stewart;

Thanks for explaining to Noelle why I saw her image prepared like that.
