This could easily become my favourite thread.

Flickr often produces gems.

Examples (all from Madrid 2009):















Irony.














Love the warm colouring and the use of natural light to further add to the effects.

You're welcome.

Other photos I like, but maybe not "brilliant":


...the rain and that look of agony on Mario's face.


I like how they're both smiling whilst looking in different directions.

Paulo.








Maybe not strictly tennis... but





His senior career in a nutshell.




Can't seem to find this in it's original colours. :/

WTA, brilliant nevertheless. She looks like a sprinter who's just left the blocks.

I hate to sound pedantic but

brilliant photography isnt pictures of playing hitting balls

thats weak

a "brilliant" photo should tell a story... more than what the photo is saying

for example:

i hate to pimp out my own photo selections but

each of my pictures tells a story... you can read into it. it works on multiple levels, i carefully chose each one, its really wonderfully selected (if i do say so myself)

i didn't just think, hey, nice picture of a backhand

in fact, the one picture of the gasquet backhand tells a unique story in itself... Richard's chest out, his arms fully extended in a text book manner- the puffed up chest- a french rooster in full roar even- hitting the most eloquent of shots, with the poise God only seems to gift to the french

I struggle to see how Wikipedia screen shots of players' results counts as brilliant photography. But to each their own.

I liked the Gasquet backhand picture, though.
