Great outtakes from the Sports section

By George Wilhelm, Los Angeles Times

Call these images outtakes, pictures that never see the printed page.
 
We think that we have some of the best sports photographers in the nation working here at the Los Angeles Times. We strive to show you their best work every day in the printed paper as well as on our website, and most of the time we manage to accomplish that.

Sometimes, though, our best pictures are destined for the digital archive. Maybe the picture wasn’t available until after the print deadline. Maybe the picture just didn’t fit the shape needed to make the design of the page work. Perhaps we have a really nice picture but there’s a better one from the same event. Sometimes, we have a great photo that just doesn’t reflect what has happened at the event we’re covering that day. An example: If Kobe Bryant scores 60 points in a game, we would look to publish a picture that depicts his dominating performance that night. The photographer might also take a great picture of another player, but it’s Kobe that you’ll see in the paper the next day. Space in the print edition is limited, so some pictures get “left behind.”

Here are a few of those pictures. Any of them might have graced the cover of our sports section on another day. There’s plenty more that we’ll be able to share in the future.
