30 minutes = amount of time I spent in the rain to get the picture above.

Honestly, for me baseball (and softball) is the most boring sport to photograph. So, imagine how much more boring is to photograph a baseball practice. But if, due to rain, the practice is inside a gym, then it becomes the mother of all boredom (I know, I know, it's the American pastime and blah, blah, blah... It must be just me). Anyway, I started playing around with slow shutter speed, panning and using the folded stands as a graphic element. I threw this picture in, together with the "safe shots," and (oh, surprise, surprise) it got printed. Something must be changing... and I'm grateful for that.
