With the sports photography project due this week I looked at sportsillustrated.com photos and chose to browse the pictures of the most recent Super Bowl. This photo was taken by John Iacono of Sports Illustrated.

This is Jordy Nelson of the Green Bay Packers catching the first touchdown pass of Super Bowl XLV. He is catching the pass over William Gay of the Pittsburgh Steelers and this makes a great sports photo for the conflict. During the lecture of sports photography this photo features conflict by one person of each team fighting for a ball that is present in the photo. With the ball already caught, Gay is struggling to make a play on the ball because the receiver has already beaten him. This photo is also very clean with each player being so clear by not being jumbled up with the linemen also in play. This was shot with a 300mm telephoto lens.
