U Pick’em Think Tank Photo Contest 2013!

By Al Diaz 

U Pick’em Think Tank Photo Contest 2013!

The King of Hoops, LeBron James, comes crashing down with a monster slam. Swoosh! The sound is deafening from the rip roar of the crowd and the whir of camera motor drives capturing a multitude of images.

Shooting 10 or more frames per second on the Canon 1DX or the Nikon D4 will get you a lot of frames to choose from.

Usually, one frame captures that decisive moment. Then there are times while breezing through an edit you stop dead in your tracks. Suddenly, you are indecisive. Which frame, which crop, which moment looks better from two camera positions, the pole remote camera under the basket or the one from your hand held camera at your court position?

You’ve got three minutes before the sports front deadline. The Heat are in the lead during Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs.

Tell us which one of the top four photographs you would select to publish and why?
