OMG it's so wrong to have to choose between these two!

Ms. Conduct said...

We're torturing you with your own photos!!! So cruel!

I haven't voted yet. Can't decide.

Well, Fred, for this one, I think I have to go with Love. The Locke shot was one of the most incredible things I've ever seen, but the way you got that look in Love's eyes is incredible.

Oh DEAR... this time i simply have to stick with the 'foaming at mouth/
thunderclouds on brow' story., even though I did vote for the other in the 1. round - darn you, Mr. Camera, it is sickening to have to select ONLY ONE!

I don't think it is going to survive this round, but the Locke photo is simply one of the best hockey photos I have ever seen.

And I think that has something to do with how vividly I remember that goal and how well this picture reminds me of exactly what I remember.

Really sublime shots from both Fred and Corey.

Andrew - same here.

Ms. Conduct said...

I had to go for the Locke photo. I'm not convinced I made the right choice though.

Fred Trask said...

I went with Mitch because it's clearly the better photo, especially for those who were not present for the actual events. The goal was absolutely freaking sick but the shot isn't as good without the context of the shots around it. The opposite can probably be said about the Love photo.

So, I went with the Love shot. It's either a lose, lose or win, win depending on how you look at your glass. :-)

Love Locke, but those angry looks get me all the time.
(and NO, the fact that Mitch is one of the angry boys is NOT coloring my decision!)

Again-- GREAT work, Fred!
