^^ why not add some nice pictures from YOUR favs?

Re: Brilliant Tennis Photography Thread

A brilliant idea for a thread, thanks for starting it!
The inherent gracefulness of the sport of tennis does make for stunning photo moments, it's great having a thread to be able to appreciate that in.
And though most(uhm, 90%?) of the photos I find beautiful that I have saved are of Roger , I do have a few of the non-Fedal variety.

Some are more interesting because they capture a moment rather than beautiful, but they've all made me stop and take notice for some reason.


Gonzalez in RG'09 SF - the torture of clay


Robredo, last year, I think in Miami?
This one captures the frustration of the moment perfectly.


Moya


Cañas


I really like the lights in this one, it lends itself to photoshop manipulation beautifully. Santoro in AO '99. You can almost feel the AO heat in there.
Can't find it without the watermark.



Also, pretty much EVERY SINGLE photo taken at last year's Madrid event, by a photographer whose flickr I can't find anymore.
It made the Madrid venue look like indoor clay theatre.
This one is one of my favourites:
(It's Djokovic, if you can't recognize those blue shoes immediately. )

Well one of my fav tennis pictures ever:


A very striking scene, Feds waiting at the net to congratulate Rafa with his Wimbledon victory. The disappointment drips from his face, beautifully illustrated by the light shining around him. The photographer really 'caught the moment'.
And it isn't even close to 'technically perfect', but the flashlight artefacts only make it even more dramatic. What an awesome job. Should I ever be able to make such a picture, I'd be very proud of it.
That is stunning and I don't even like Fed! Wimbledon makes for really gorgeous photos if the sun manages to shine.

- well that's a funny comment as the picture was made at dusk, in near-darkness. The light is all artificial, coming from various flash photography at that moment. Glad you like it though, I think it's stunning too!

Yeah I just realised when I looked at it again (and my mind processed what match it was lol!), but it kinda looks like that soft, hazy light Wimbledon manages to get sometimes. Flash photography mostly looks horrible so kudos to that photographer!

Exactly. How that photographer managed to pull this off is beyond me, and I suspect it was in fact a 'lucky' shot that turned out extraordinarilly well.
