    Girl swinging at softball during practice. My timing was lucky and I was able to catch the softball as it aligned with her face before she hit it.

    Rita...this timing is completely spot on and brings a huge smile to my face! I love the choice to put this image in black and white because it forces us to focus on the textures and moment even more! Nicely done, I love it.
