U Pick’em Think Tank Photo Contest!

By Al Diaz 
U Pick’em Think Tank Photo Contest!
Sometimes it’s tough. Crunched on deadline you must pick a frame. A quick burst of the motor drive on the Canon EOS 1D Mark IV and you can end up with a lot of frames to choose from. Usually, one frame captures that decisive moment that sports photographers strive for. Then there are times like this at the Orange Bowl football game where the choice is not so clear.

Do you select the peak of the moment of the player getting lifted? The aesthetics, expressions or readability of the image? I can go on but I’ll let you tell us which one of the top three photographs you would select to publish and why.

Comment on my blog to enter the contest for a chance to win a FREE Think Tank Photo Urban Disguise® 35 V2.0 valued at $159.75! A random winner will be selected on January 31, 2012. Free shipping within the US mainland. All others must pay the postage through my PayPal account. 

Please add your email to the comments so I know exactly who to contact when you win! Don't forget to check back at the end of the month to read what everyone has to say.

Charles Trainor Jr. and I covered the West Virginia game against Clemson at the 2012 Discover Orange Bowl, Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens on Wednesday night, January 4.

Both teams lit up the scoreboard but in the end the Mountaineers' offense crushed the Tigers 70 - 33.
