Hi, David. A good sports shot with a nice attitude of the player serving. The contrast between his white clothes and the green surface works very well. His shadow is also an interesting compositionale element. Maybe you could have tried to get the whole shadow of the racket in the frame.

Fantastic capture. You got his movement so sharp with just enough movement of the ball. The expression on his perfectly lit face is excellent. Nice having the shadow too.

Great action shot!! You have captured this tennis player in a leap as graceful as a ballet with an exhuberant expression on his face. The detail and color is wonderful.

You really nailed this one, catching the player in the course of a hard shot, his entire body rising above the court. The lighting is perfect and there is great sharpness and clarity of detail, right down to the ball. I see from the exposure info that this was taken at 1/2000 of a second. A tribute to your timing and the Nikon's prowess. Cheers.

I am filled with wonder by qualities at the image here, in particular by the good management of the lights and clearness. I wonder whether the photograph is taken in mode “gust” ? I much also like as my friends the shades which gives a superb relief to this sporting scene where the effort of the player is felt well. Beautiful work, cheer.
With all my friendships and I wish you all my best wishes for this new year,
