Hard tackle

I haven't put up a shot from an Olympian Football game in a while. While this may not be to the liking os many I haven't got anything else to put up. I also thought I'd look for something where I could play around with the crop. I've chosen a 16:9 crop here.

Apart from the obvious monochrome colour and softening, I also adjusted the lighting as well on parts of the body of the players in this one to give is a bit more drama. Let's hope I'll have something more interesting for both blogs tomorrow.

nice shades, great pic
Jide Alakija: Thanks.
Do you know, it's wierd. With the pp you've put on this it ALMOST looks staged to me! I know it couldn't possibly be, but it's such a sharp capture that I have trouble seeing the dynamic in the image. Gosh, it's such a dichotomy this image. It's created a debate within me, Jide....perhaps that is good...
Jide Alakija: Basically you are saying it's over processed!

I like the processing you've done. It makes it appear as this was one of the most important plays of the game.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Micki.

i did like the one with the solitary footballer and i like this one as well..the crop is great...would like it better if the pp-ed lighting was a bit more subtle....8.5/10
Very nice sport picture, with a good idea with the light.
