About the Image(s)

Canon 5D Mark III, 100mm, f/3.5, 1/1000 sec., ISO 125

There was some cropping involved. The discussion between the umpire and manager about the umpire's call was the main subject. I thought that the players helped to tell the story. I didn't want the yellow uniforms to draw away from the subjects so I tried to spotlight the real action.

Action and story telling shows here. The manager is pointing his finger. The kid with the bat is funny. Well captured.

Great story shot. Finger pointing is really important in the image story. Nice capture. Might try to subdue the bright white behind the umpire. Leveling the image also might help.   Posted: 05/11/2022 15:43:13

This tells the story well. Good job of keeping the eye to the right where the two main subjects are. The image could be straightened since to me it seems to tilt to the right.   Posted: 05/13/2022 06:53:48

It does tilt slightly but it is to the left instead of the right according to the post inside the dugout. I missed that.

It is a very nice story telling image. It looks like a photojournalism category.   Posted: 05/14/2022 02:59:36

I agree with Sol that the image should be straightened. It certainly shows the disagreement well with that finger pointing.   Posted: 05/14/2022 12:58:48

Great capture of expressions in the exchange. Yes, leveling would be good, but I didn't notice it right away, so not critical to the story. The eye goes right to the main characters even with others in the frame. Fun pic.   Posted: 05/16/2022 11:53:23

A memorable moment frozen in time. The overbearing manager and the complying ref which looks like his stance is out of Reffing 101.

I think the people are level so I don't know if you can have both, people and background. More to do with the angle of the shot.
