Jump! How high?

Digging into the archives. Got one of the shots from the Olympians training sessions. Not much to say here apart from the fact that I'm in a busy period with work and PhD at the moment, no real time to get out and get something interesting. Is this interesting enough?

On another note, what would you say would be the Alakija style when it comes to my images? Can you recognise an image that I've taken and processed? Another thing that I'm trying to understand is what people look for when they hire out a photographer and more so a creative photographer, if you hired me what would you like me to do and how would you like me to produce the images?

On another note. I've started another photoblog on Shutterchance called the Street Phone Photoblog. In this one I have decided to put up shots of things I encounter on a daily basis. The images would not be anything artistic but take it as a daily journal into the life of a photographer. You'll see images that you would not normally see due to the limitations of carrying a huge DSLR. Wish me luck. Check it out.

Also as part of the Week of Peace there is a FREE
Peace Gala show which promises to be really good. Check out the PDF for details.

Very intersting photo. I prefer B/W tones. You have action on photo, i can only suggest in framing. I'll use more of your zoom in this case.

Perfect, in every respect, except the man stadning in the back which cannot be helped.
Jide Alakija: Let's not miss the point. This is a captured scene in training. The man at the back it part of the scene.

That's a really nice moment. Processing really suits it too.

Hmmm...I'm not keen on the overlay of the player and the spectator, I think it's because it's halved his face. Other than that is top drawer.
