Action Pic Contest Winner - Judge's Choice
Judge’s pick – Baseball Graduation
Winner: Andrew from Los Angeles, U.S
Why we chose this picture?

The wonderful photograph of a baseball player hovering in the air like a ballet dancer, holding his diploma instead of a baseball, and with his gaze turned directly to the camera, stood out with its perfect composition, precise capture of the moment, dramatic lighting, but mainly because of the almost surreal scene. Why is he hovering? Why did he hold the diploma? What is the story behind the picture? This photograph made us smile and, but most of all – intrigued.

So here are some answers, by the winner himself:

My name is Andrew and I’m an audio engineer/photographer in the Los Angeles area. I pretty much learned how to use a camera by photographing my brother playing baseball throughout our lives. This photo was taken for his college graduation as he wrapped up his 4-year college baseball career at Cal State Dominguez Hills. He played shortstop throughout college, so I asked him to emulate a jump throw holding his diploma instead of a ball. I used a canon 80D and a speedlite just left of the camera.

Most Popular – Jumping for Joy in the Snow
Winner: Petra

Prize: Pictar One Plus
