With the Olympics going on this weeks challenge was sports to fit the theme. Photographing sports is always its own monster as you have to catch the moment in a subject that tends to keep you on your toes to catch everything. Between zip lines, cars, and horses we had a bit of a mix this week as you guys thought out of the box.

I like using the silhouette and sun for a monochrome shot. Using the rule of thirds while dropping low you get a lot of foreground draw focus to your subject and bokeh.
Roy's Honorable Mentions:
One nice thing about sports is you get to practice your panning photography. Erwin was a nice crisp shot using a slower speed while not blurring out the background to the point you can’t tell what's going on in the scene.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BJTU6gaDg-5/Justin has a nice sports shot of a sailing practice run. The nice thing to keep in mind for photos like these is the boat in the background balances the photos interest. Otherwise you’d have one boat and a lot of negative space in the background. https://www.instagram.com/p/BJRUcSrAbxx/
