    Hey Jack. Let us know what you were going for here. I am not making the connection between the image and the title (could be going right over my head).

    Ah ha! I get where you are going with this. As a general rule you would leave more space in the photo for the direction the subject is moving toward v. leaving behind but rules are always made to be broken. At first glance my eye had the ball moving toward the bottom left rather than away. I don't know why but it was just my first sort of gut reaction. The exposure is pretty well spot on but the effect needs to be more pronounced IMHO to see the motion. Nonetheless, it makes me long for the American pastime. Go Tigers!

    What may be worth trying is to shoot the ball against a backdrop of a nice sky. You will need to 'invisibly' support the ball or have something which can be easily cloned out.

    I have found that macro shots against a print of a suitable sky can be effective.
