      Usually I'm pretty good at going past the pretty and staying in the sport, but sometimes you just have to go ... "Wow!" This is definitely one of those times. And still ... it's also an awesome shot, Joe. Nicely done.

      Thanks, guys! This was one of those rare times when everything magically aligned, and the autofocus and PocketWizards actually worked when I needed them to. The background is a mess, but I can replace it in Photoshop if I get the urge. :)

      Don't hurry. It gives the photo wonderful verite and adds to the excitement. I really is like catching a magic moment.

      I actually like the background, i wouldn't remove it. It's what gives the shot a sense of presence - you're right there in the action as LuLu rounds the corner.

      What I do with these sometimes is darken and blur the background just a bit; it de-emphasizes the background without fundamentally changing it.

      But really, I mean - what background? B^)

      Hot pic! Hotter Rollergirl!!

      On a technical note, it's hard to believe this was shot @ ISO 3200, no discernible noise, very cool.

      DBE, I use noise reduction in Lightroom 3. Its algorithm is amazing, far better than the Neat Image program I used to use.

      The background actually adds. You can see some of her teammates.

      Just saw this again today on Tumblr. It still gives me the shivers. Getting these jammer-head-on blazing-towards-you shots looking crisp and well-lit is bloody hard enough. But this image is just off the scale. She is utterly beautiful and so is this as a captured sports moment. Phew.

      Excellent shot Joe, and not a bad looker too :)
