Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Farktography Classic: Sports Photography 2"

: Professional, amateur or recreational, show us people involved in sports!

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.

Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.
- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Stats can be found here.

Easy Curls at Sandy's

Sandy Beach in Southeast Oahu is popular with locals on the Windward side of the island and Honolulu due to a combination of ease of access and it's predictably strong shorebreak. It's also got dangerously fast rips that typically keeps tourists out of the water. Sometimes though, conditions are just right and the regulars are treated to world-class curls on the "wrong" side.

Don't have much in my files for sports, so here's some Damn Yankee (maybe Judge?) swinging at a pitch from Kevin Gausman this past April... best part of the game was the O's winning while my NY'er girlfriend watched with me :-D
