Here’s a sports photography image I made at the One Day International cricket match between Australia and the West Indies. I noticed that a couple of the Australian fielders were having to chase the ball down behind the wicket so when Ben Cutting fielded this ball, I made use of the nice clean black background. It’s a really simple use of the sight screens but is somewhat different from most of the cricket shot you come to see. Could it almost be mistaken for someone playing baseball?
