In the over processed category. But then again in the creative one too. I can't remember when I took this shot exactly but I remember it was one I did when I was experimenting with the rule of thirds. Nothing really special and I bet I'm not going to get many comments on this one.

Okay I think I've over stayed my break I really should get back to work. Use the blogging time useful and oh yeah the interface is almost finished, I just need to run through a few more things with John and it will be up.

Like the sorta glow aroiund his upper body, makes him almost look very like "I have a force feild" around me kinda thing. The processing is different and works for thie image,
I missed something..interface?

I think the "down on one knee" helps - a sort of contemplative approach.
Nice work. I think my friend sold the O's that kit!
guess the halo goes with the shot...but overall its a bit too dark and a bit too soft for me....
Tkaes me back to my childhood Jide. It's early morning before the game, the player has suited up and goes out alone, this is his last game for ole Miss as he's a senior and he's not going to the pros. ect, ect ect. Misty morning, soft glow, can I buy this ?

It may appear a little mixed as this sort of processing is closely linked with romance and soft warm fuzzy feelings.
It does seem a bit over processed, at least for this kind of photo. I think of sports photos as being either very clean, or more gritty as opposed to soft and dreamy like this one. There's a bit of a halo around him especially in the darker area behind him.

this is really lovely!looks inspiring sef!yea and @ the last comment,its the fact that sport is supposed to be gritty and then you have this snapshot moment, of him kneeling down in a moment of his own, thats what makes it so beautiful!u can still see the grit, his geaer is torn and dirty and dusty)
nice work, jide!
How can you say that. what do you want the likes of me to think. Its not your best but it absolutely lovely to me. But then maybe i need to change my glasses. Now thats a thought.
