I have made it, and still have a few more images under review and several more to submit.

Do a search for lacrosse and 50.8% of the actual lacrosse shots are mine. Ok, here's the current breakdown...

Lacrosse search results 85

- Nothing to dow with lacrosse or sports 10

- Shots of Bleachers and seats 6

- Shots of soccer nets 8 (lacrosse netting has smaller spaces)

This kind of makes me feel like I'm cheating to get the numbers I want, then again these images aren't what a person looking for images on the game of lacrosse would even look at or expect to find.

Let me explain the soccer net vs lacrosse net. To put it simply, the lacrosse goal is much smaller than the soccer goal, and the netting has a much smaller spacing. The lacrosse ball could fit through the spacing in the soccer netting. Just compare the lacrosse goals to the soccer netting shots.

I am still working on getting model releases for images I already have. My goal is to provide different uniform colors and I need to start working on the boys/mens games to provide a larger selection. Most of my images will be of lacrosse for a while, but I hope to work on other subjects before the season starts back up again. Hopefully by the end of the mont, if you do a search on lacrosse 50% of the results will be mine. Including all the ones I subtracted above.

This was a personal goal I set, and welcome more shots. My overall goal is to provide the buyers with images they want, and will stick with DT.

Update, with right around 10 days to go I am at 68.75% of the lacrosse images. One of my latest additions. Searh has 120 results, less 24 for above mentioned reasons leaving 96 of which 66 are currently mine. I do have a few more awaiting review, so maybe I can make it to 70%......
