Always be looking for something unique to add to your shots. This post-rain-storm game added a water uniqueness to this shot.
Keeping an action shot level in the frame is not easy (for me at least), and man-made structures in the frame are unforgiving in their revealing of levelness. At this angle, the cross bar may show some diminishing line effect, but the upright post should be straight up and down in most shots.
The 400 f/2.8's background blur hides some of the revelation, but I was close to level in this shot.
