Just Because...

I shot this last weekend at Michael's game. I like the result here...not sure why...but I do...

I used the 300 LR preset, and pumped the cyan up, and cropped for effect.

Have a Scouts camping trip this weekend - hope it is just a light rain =)

Great photo. I like it a lot also, especially the color.

Tight group, but lots of action with each kid pointing (going) a different direction.

Nice capture,
Troy

Like the processing on this. Ah, children. Always make for great images and this is no exception. I would image the scout outing this weekend should make for some great images too! I hope we get to see them.

Love this image. I don't know what was happening at the time, but it reminds me of those moments when the younger soccer players lose focus. Once on my son's team, the fans watched as the play moved down the field towards our goal. Surprised and amused we were to see the little goalie attempting to do a headstand and eating marshmallows at the same time, oblivious to the oncoming action! Gotta love these little guys. I like the preset and the tweaks you did.

Have a great weekend! Stay dry and safe...

I laughed at Julie's story about the headstands and marshmallow eating. :) HA!

I like this one, Mike. I think what captures me is how you processed it. That preset looks great for this and pumping up the Cyan really put the processing over the top. Love it.

Enjoy the camping trip...stay dry with all the rain coming. :(

The tones do it for me also.

This reminds me of when my youngest son started playing football (it is called football!) at the age of 6 and both teams would just run around in one pack chasing the ball!

Have a great weekend Mike. Oh I'll email an answer to your question.

Brilliant capture.

I am not quite sure where to look and I suppose that is why this one works so well!

Mike,

I like the result as well. It's kind of like the 300 preset with a blue hue.

it's very nice. Subtle tones seem almost peaceful. It works with the age of the kids...I think.

I like it!
