Great set!

You were in the perfect position as well.

He'll want to see those when it is all said and done.

That second shot is insane!
In reply to CIPAMS, Mar 15, 2008

Great capture indeed. Talk about being at the right spot at the right time!
To bad for the kid though. Must have hurt like hell.

Looks like it was not a compound fracture, so for that he is lucky. Sad to see someone get so badly hurt. If you could follow up with a trip to the hospital and get us a shot of him smiling holding up his cast, that would be great. Sign his cast for us, 'Friends at DPReview."""

Update...on kid
In reply to FieldenPhoto, Mar 16, 2008

The kid had his arm set and from what the coach said he his doing and will be fine...a lot of pain though...the right place and time for the shot. I think I have about 25-30 shots of every second that happened thanks to the D3 doing its job. And of course you always have some people saying how could you shoot something like that (at the match), hey I'm here to capture time as it happens...

Two questions:
In reply to CIPAMS, Mar 16, 2008

1. Do you have proper liability insurance?

2. Can you quickly and easily remove these images from this link if the need arises?

Liability?

Unless one of the kids is in some form or protective custody--in which case the school or venue would have some burden for notifying the media, a school/youth sporting event should be considered totally fair game for non-commercial/press publication under first amendment terms... assuming the OP is in the US.

Is there any particular reason you're scaring the OP? Do you have a liability horror story of your own to share? I would be interested in hearing it for my own edification (and yes, I carry insurance).

I did the same thing to my arm at age 10
In reply to CIPAMS, Mar 16, 2008

different situation, but a dual compound fracture.
looked like I had a second elbow.

still have never damage from it that the only thing which fixed it was holding a huge camera above my head.

Glad to hear he's been treated. Though, he'll be bummed to be out of the action for a while.

He'll be grateful that you had the pictures. It's natural for people to want to show respect for the injury. Many people believe that photographers profit from such moments, and that is the other half of the resistence. I shoot a lot of martial arts photos and videos, so it takes a seasoned shooter to recognize that he must continue to shoot during the accident rather than stop and hold his jaw open and feel stupid afterwards for doing nothing but watch. I learned this during a near drowning. I was videotaping a fellow doing some water sports for the first time. He said he knew how to swim, and even with a life vest, he couldn't do it. Eventually, I realized he was drowning, dropped the camera and swam out to pull him in. Everyone else froze, though I should have passed the camera to someone else to record the saving.

The kid had surgery and pins to hold his arm together, and is doing fine...

at least the bone didn't pop out... I had that happen and have a nasty scar from it.
for me, it happened closer to my wrist.

MAKE SURE he does the exercises and pe that they assign. I didn't really and I still have nerve problems.
