HS Baseball...Critique needed.
Here are two captures from a game yesterday. Different frames and crops from the same burst. I can't decide which one I want to use in my gallery. I am torn between #1 which captures more of a complete image and #2 which is a tighter crop and maybe is a little more dramatic.

Any comments will be greatly appreciated.

1.


2.


Thanks.

Crop #1 tighter to remove some of the distracting elements at top of the frame and use that. The "drama" is the same in both images for me. You can't see the plate - and, in fact, image 1 you can see the mitt a bit. Image 1 has the benefit of not cropping off the arm of the catcher. If it's just for viewing, not ordering, you don't need to keep the aspect ratio - so no issues there.

Thanks John, I agree with your suggestions. I will work on image #1 and post the fix later for comments.
