OK, before you look at the baseball picture, look at the airplane picture. If you have a rapidly moving object and happen to catch it moving diagonally across the shutter as the shutter itself is moving, you can get a bend in it because one side (or top) of the image is exposed just every so slightly later than the other (or bottom).

So this prop looks bent.



I've gotten several shots of baseball bats that look bent also:



So are they bent from the impact -- or is this an illusion from the shutter motion as well?

This was shot at 1/1000th of a second by the way, minor league game and I think theirs are all wood, right?

Here's one a bit slower (1/640th), college game so I think it's aluminum:



Optical illusion, or is the bad bending?
