    This is pretty basic Photoshopping, but I wanted to see what others thought and if there was anything else I could do. I like the picture, but I think that the eye tends to drift away from the subject. I blurred the background to bring the focus back towards the center, so let me know what you think.

    Like I said, I thought this could probably use more editing, so any suggestions are welcome. Thanks!

    Since the catcher isn't in the shot, I would crop it just behind home plate. But thats just me.

    Nice.
    You might consider selecting the part of the bat from the ball out and darkening it a little to make it more obvious and closer in tone to the inner half.

    I would also try darkening that triangle below his left shirt sleeve to stop it popping out.

    I would crop it much tighter to the bat on the left and then fix the blur halo around the guy, because of the fence it is really obvious that it was blurred.

    Maybe the bkg could be darkened a tad as well.

    Nice action shot!
