Ryu shot Croatia vs Serbia which was good, and figure skating while ill which was bad. Matt shot one soccer match and took the rest of the month off to recover from illness. Notice a trend?

Master Class
Ryu and Matt continue their discussion (blog posts: here and here) sparked by a reader question about creativity vs stock photos.

Training Ground
Training Ground is now on video. If you’d like to participate (and we think you should), enter your pictures in the Flickr thread and make sure to tag them BLFSTG201304.

Our March 2013 themed competition was “Unique (and thoughtful) Composition.”

  1. The photographs that won/were entered in the “Unique (and thoughtful) Composition” were all great pictures, my only complaint is, the competition stated it was for the “best indoor sports picture”, in which the 1st and 2nd place pictures do not qualify. Did the criteria change?
