Poor cropping hurts a lot of entries overall, but in the end the ubiquity of sharp sports action photos dilutes the category leaving us scrambling for really outstanding work. In the end we could only bring ourselves to award two. First was a great catch of a peak action moment with all the sense of motion and drama needed. Second was another strong peak action freezing the critical moment of a critical play.
