Shots with issues #4

I think I'll add this one to my "shots with issues" gallery as it really looks like one of those that has something missing....the main subject. Somehow I do like it very much because of that....it keeps you guessing about it..."what could the subject have been?", " was it the ball?", "another player?", "are they actually even playing football or just acting out something?" the mystery in this shot makes it for me.

uve highlighted the problem....even though the scene uve captured is wonderful and the tones are perfect there seems to be a lack of a definite focal point...
