Just a little background on this image. It was shot during the tail-end of my son's soccer season when it gets dark early. I was shooting wide open at 2.8, ISO 1600, at 1/60 (hand holding with body curled into a ball to steady the camera and to keep me from freezing). This shot in many areas is out of focus and shows a lot of motion blur. It made me sick that it wasn't tack-sharp cuz its really a cool shot. I sharpened it in areas and exaggerated the blur in others. Is it worth it to try to enter it into competition? I have many other sports shots that are tack-sharp but there is something about this one. What do you think?

Kelly being totally honest there is no way to tell on this small of a file, especially when you have told us the details behind the image there a lot of questions about image and print quality that will make a big difference. I like the image when I look at it here but like I said it is just too small
