Hi Ken
You have captured his intense concentration. There is blurring of the arm, unfortunately I don't have any useful tips because I am a novice myself. I like the shot and note. TFS, Jean

The blurring is quite normal. It is caused by the speed of the arm movement. There are two reasons for the blur: (1) ISO. I normally set ISO at 200 with intelligent ISO up to 400. This is often nowhere fast enough in sports; and/or (2) shutter speed is not fast enough.

The blur itself conveys valuable information in a photograph. It says that I have captured the picture "in the course of an action". It is the right arm which is moving. The remainder of the body is "rock" steady. Remember that a photograph reflects a point in time. But every photo has a before and after. Every photo shows what is there and what is not there. Viewing a photograph is not a passive act.

Regards, Ken
