This month’s theme, chosen by last month’s winner Furguson, is “The Frozen Peak.”

Sports shooting is often about capturing the "peak of the action", the ball strike on the bat, the base slide as the glove tags out. And while still photography always freezes that moment in time, in contrast to last month's "blur", let us show images that emphasize being frozen in time, the ball unmoving as it hits the bat, the hand locked in time just short of the base – shots where your first reaction is “frozen” at that peak action.

Archive shots are permissible.

The top images will be selected by the winner of the previous months challenge and will be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo.

The winning image will be added to the Monthly Challenge Winner’s Gallery for the Sports Forum.
The monthly winners will also choose the finalists and the theme for the following month.

We look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!

Good luck!!!

RULES:
-- Post up to 5 images but only one image/post
-- Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
-- Previously posted images are welcome but not previous contest winners.
-- When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
-- Include a title in the subject line
-- Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens
-- Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback
-- WARNING Posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge will not be selected as finalists and may be periodically removed by the moderators without notice.

Here is a sample image provided by Ferguson.
