Congrats to MT Stringer for his candid fishing photo that he photographed and submitted in the last contest. We have chosen the topic of Candid Sports Photos for this month.

Any non-posed, sports photo is legal. The photo can contain action, it can portray emotion, it can show intensity, it can be high fives, it can be laughter at the water cooler, or anything that shows sporting activity. Feel free to be creative, and most of all, shoot the camera when presented the opportunity.

A couple of tips to consider: (there are no absolutes in photography)
When selecting a photo candidate, pay attention to your subject (expressions, intensity, emotion), clarity, and the sharpness of the photo. Also consider cropping in tighter to bring the action in close if you you have enough extra pixels to do so (but dont sacrifice clarity).

Here are the rules.
1.) The photo must be your's or your family's
2.) Submit one photo per person.
3.) Submit the photo to this thread.
4.) Keep the photo less than 640 pixels wide so that we dont have to scroll.

If you have some honorable mentions or if you want everyone's opinion on some photos before you submit, fire up a separate thread and share the out takes and potential entries with us there.

Photo submissions for this month will end on Fri, June 30th, 2006. After that time, we will take 1 week to vote for a favorite. The winner can help choose the next month's theme.

All photos should be submitted to this thread, but they will also be copied (by pelican, thanks!) in this webshots gallery for easy viewing:

Good luck!

"******* Sport"

I guess you could call it that. It was during the day before Spring Break where you can't get the kiddos to do anything so we setup some horse shoes. Well one of them got my camera to take some pictures, little did I know that I would be in some of them!!

Don't be to harsh on me this is my first attempt in "the contest"

Hmmmmm. I'm not a "fan" so this might be a tough one for me to jump in on. I'll see what I can do, though.

You know, I'm not in the same league with some of the regulars in here and I don't expect I'll ever take a prize but that is not the real reason that I enjoy the contests so much. What I REALLY like is being able to see the work of some absolutely wonderful photographers.

Some of the pics I've seen in here are Nationl Geographic quality. I hope these contests will continue indefinitely.

Who knows I might get lucky and one day fumble around and come up with a worthy entry of my own.

Bless you GC!! :D

I wonder if we are going to need a ruling on this one. What about it Mikey. Is fishing to be considered a "sport" for the purposes of entering this contest?

I think fishin's a sport, but shouldn't any candid fishing photos have gone in last month's contest? But if you have one you feel is better suited to this month's contest, then I say by all means post it up. This is just my opinion. MT and Cutter should be the rulers on this.

Any sport where I can sit, smoke a fine tobacco product and drink an adult libation is OK by me.
Fishing, Golf and Bowling all come to mind. Hmmm, does casino gaming count? :)

Fishing sounds OK to me, but I was thinking this month's topic would cover things like the different "ball" sports, and a lot of other sports like cycling, skiing, golf, drag racing (and other racing venues)...stuff like that.

wud up with the sports pics??


Fishing is definitely a sport, and if you have a fishing photo that you feel is good, portrays a sporting image (and I have seen several on this board), and is worthy of someone's vote in a sports photo contest, by all means post it.

However, I have seen a lot of grandkids chasing the soccer ball, sons/daughters hitting a baseball, neighborhood volleyball games, and kids jumping off of a diving block into the swimming pool. These have been great photos shown here already and will provide great opportunities to take a photo for this month's contest. So just be sure to participate with a photo that you feel would make a good candid sport submission. Ultimately you can submit whatever you want, but if you really love the photo of your granddaughter chasing a soccer ball, you may not get another opportunity to play that photo in the contest for a while.
