You did well to freeze the action of his windup Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Elizabeth. I was in a good spot, shooting through the loops from behind the net.
Caught him just right, Ayush! No foul for you...smile
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Frank. I bet he was in a foul mood!

What a pity...he looks balanced and powerful in your fine shot, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I am sure he mentally kicked himself several times, Ray.
I am impressed at how far he can get his arm back ready to launch the disc Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Something like a coil spring, Chad.
Poor guy. That's no fun, making too many fouls after all that hard work. But you did a good job of capturing him, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Very good point, Ginnie. Frustrating to say the least.

Another good action shot Ayush
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the generous remark, Chris.
Superb action shot Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Richard.

Ayush Basu: grin
Thank you, Elaine. I imagine it was frustrating for him.

Feel the power, Ayush
Ayush Basu: Rather explosive and the loud grunt that comes with their exhale is testament to the power, Lisl.

Not good if you can't find your rhythm - need a coach or a knowledgeable friend to critically observe.
Ayush Basu: Frustrating, Louis. You could be right, perhaps he needs a coach who can identify what he is overlooking so far.
I threw discus too in school. Spawned my love of frisbee.
Ayush Basu: Wow, that is impressive, Mary. I attempted this one time decades ago and decided against trying it any further.
I gather half a toe over the line and its disqualification!
Ayush Basu: Actually his discus landed outside the designated quadrant, Brian. Something to do with release technique, but what do I know!
It happens sometimes but at least you got a good picture Ayush
Ayush Basu: Frustrating but yes, some days are like that, Bill.

Intense concentration in this image!

A great action shot to add to your portfolio!
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the generous remark, Emily.
A good look of concentration...
Ayush Basu: Alas, it did not help him that much, Larry.

A study in concentration. My discus throwing was worse than my javelin!!
Ayush Basu: He had some trouble getting into his rhythm, Mike.
I am right there with you!

Difficult to keep in the circle, I suppose - more so if tossing the hammer. The stands look rather empty.
Ayush Basu: I recall he kept tossing outside the quadrant, Alan. The relays and sprints were more popular events than throwing.
More practice needed!
Ayush Basu: Indeed, Tom.
It's a powerful game.
Ayush Basu: And involves a lot of practice too, LC.

I can see the concentration on his face.
Ayush Basu: He did focus on his routine, unfortunately he could not get his rhythm going, Cherry.
