It would be nice if "sport photography" had it's own area, like: Nature, Portrait etc. Your call, I don't know what "Herman's" is.
I have no objection to creating a new "Sports" forum but do you think it's get much usage versus a "Show Sports" thread? Are you thinking just sports or "Sports & Action' or something else?

Anybody else have thoughts? Do we not see too many sports images because the "Show Sports" thread isn't easy to spot or because there isn't a dedicated forum or because there aren't many members shooting those types of shots?

I think historically there haven't been many "sports" images shared because this forum was more dedicated to compact cameras and (quite wrongly) people don't think of them as shooting sports.

I think a "Sports and Action" forum makes sense

You could have a sports forum with an images sub forum and a technical sub forum for gear, techniques, post processing, etc. I was going to suggest subforums for different sports, e. g., motorsports, but there are a lot of diffferent sports out there.

A dedicated "Sports & Action" forum sounds great. Everyone shoots their kids playing sports or wants to. I will post some "action/sports" shots to get everyone out there and do some shooting, once created. :)

"Sports and Action" is open, empty, & waiting. :D Sports and Action

"Sports and Action"! I was thinking earlier "Sports and ...? Sports and Adventure? Sports and Outdoors?" and did not come up with "Action". :laugh:

For now let's see how much activity the general "Sports and Action" forum gets. If it ends up getting really busy and the members agree, then we can create some sub-forums for specific sports and events as needed/wanted.
