Nice pics I think I'll steal them and use them for whatever I want, maybe I'll put them up on my web-site.

Wow, Rich! Those are GREAT shots of the players in the heat of battle! /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Thorsten Hohman always has that same stare on his face when he's in stroke, very disciplined and deliberte.

Danny Basavich always drops his lower jaw. I do the same thing when I'm in the zone. /ccboard/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

Mike Davis usually twists his bottom jaw to the right before he fires the trigger.

Keith uses both eyes to zero in on a shot and doesn't have one dominant eye.

Tony Robles does seem to have a dominant eye when he shoots. Shannon Daulton does, too.

Fabio Petroni lays low on his shots.

Shawn Putnam likes to squint his eyes when he's contemplating a shot. It was great to see him win two big tournaments in a row.

I'm no camera buff, and I enjoy seeing high-quality photos such as yours. They really do capture the players' personalities while engaged in competition. To complement the thread, here's a few more shots I got from the SBE:

<font color="red">Thanks Jen. </font color>

Thorsten Hohman always has that same stare on his face when he's in stroke, very disciplined and deliberte.

<font color="red">Jen, I have 8 or 10 pictures of Thorsten, from VF, and his face looks exactly the same in every one of them. He never changes. From his face, you can't tell if he is winning or losing. </font color>

Danny Basavich always drops his lower jaw. I do the same thing when I'm in the zone. /ccboard/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

<font color="red">You also do that when sitting at the rail, watching Keith's matches. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif </font color>

Mike Davis usually twists his bottom jaw to the right before he fires the trigger.

Keith uses both eyes to zero in on a shot and doesn't have one dominant eye.

<font color="red">Keith also plays so quickly, I have been having a heck of a time getting good pictures of him. </font color>

Tony Robles does seem to have a dominant eye when he shoots. Shannon Daulton does, too.

Fabio Petroni lays low on his shots.

Shawn Putnam likes to squint his eyes when he's contemplating a shot. It was great to see him win two big tournaments in a row.

<font color="red">I have noticed the squint. At first, I thought he was closing his one eye, but he is just squinting. </font color>

<font color="red">Thanks again Jen. I really like taking pictures of the players, in action. However, you always have the behind the scenes pictures that I also love. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif </font color>

Rich, those are awesome pictures. They look like the kind of official pictures that other sports use to showcase their players. I love 'em!

What is that strange-looking bridge in the second-to-last photo?

Spidey,

It's a regular bridge, just tilted up on its side a little for clearance.

Must be a problem with my display. From here, it looks as if the shaft is completely encircled by a black ring.

Putnam did not use the adjustable bridges provided, at the tournament.
He had his own, leather bridgehead, which he mounted on his jump cue, not a regular cue. Although it is turned on end, as Barbara stated, it is Putnam's own bridgehead that you see in that picture. I'm not sure what makes it look like it is encircling his shaft, but it wasn't. It may be just shadow. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

I looked at the picture better and see what's in question. You aren't seeing the shaft, that's the light reflecting on the 8 ball (not sure what ball) that he's shooting over. You can see the tip of his cue, the black ring you think is around the shaft is the 8-ball and what looks to be the rest of the shaft is just the light reflecting on the ball he's bridging over. Hope this Fred's

Thanks for clarifying this.

Not that I was worried about it or anything.

Jimmy, after studying the picture a little more, I think you are right. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

For me to shoot like a pro, I think I will need one of these rings on each hand.
The check is in the mail. Please rush the rings to me.
