Winding Up on a Soccer Ball
A girl winds up to give a soccer ball a hard kick. This photo was cropped. When using a fixed focal length lens, cropping is frequently needed for sports photos - because the action seldom remains at your optimal framing distance. A higher resolution image will hold up to cropping better than a lower resolution image - there will be more pixels remaining in the final image.
