Sports action winner

The winner of this week’s Sunshots theme “Sports action” is Colleen McCloskey with her tack-sharp photo of a rugby player scoring a try at the collegiate Rugby Championship in Chester, PA. This image was shot with a Nikon D500 at 170mm, f2.8, and 1/1600 sec. Baltimore Sun photographer, Algerina Perna observes, “McCloskey caught the player at the critical time just a split-second before scoring. The player’s determined expression coupled with his body suspended parallel to the ground emphasizes the intensity of the score and makes a compelling image.”
