Went to photograph my friends son who is a senior this year.. The boy is a powerhouse. He scored both touchdowns in the losing battle.

Phil, a really good action shot! The composition is great and the depth of field works well. I like seeing that there are avid spectators on the side of the field, but not having them distract me from the main characters.

The colors in this are striking. They are so vivid that I initially thought they might be over-saturated. However, I've finally concluded that they are real and simply vibrant.

Well done.

This is a very nice action shot. Nice colors; The main actors are sharp. the only thing I might do is clown out the person in the upper right corner.   Posted: 10/16/2018 11:29:45

I agree with Nick about the person in black being removed as she's a bit of a distraction from the great action capture. The viewer is definitely pulled into the scene and I can almost feel the hit when your friend's son lands on the player already on the field. Amazing job!   Posted: 10/25/2018 12:30:08

Great capture. I'm wondering what the bottom player is thinking as the players are about to land on his head. Good action and coloring. Yes, I agree about the woman in black. Tom's rendition cleans that up nicely.   Posted: 10/27/2018 17:25:32

A well done action photo for all the person are sharp to show the impact of the forward motion of the runner. I too would like to have the person in black either cropped out or removed in post processing.   Posted: 10/28/2018 18:14:42
