Whoever snapped this photo has a great sense of aesthetics. Sometimes less really is more.

^ I really like that one haha! Which match was it from?

All tennis photos in the dark are great, like the Wimby final and AO ceremony. Very atmospheric.

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.
such a sad moment for me, but great pic. It's beautiful imo.

Great thread btw. All the pics are loveley.

it's no wonder that the most brilliant and beautiful pix are of Federer.

Not really a tennis pic but it will serve to break the Federer-Nadal domination in this thread

King Kolya in Miami (it would be great if I had this pic in a bigger size and with high definition)
