March 2020 - Determination

About the Image(s)

My son Alex’s first day at lacrosse practice for the start of the season. He’s been working so hard in the off season to get better. For Christmas he got the long defensemen stick and his own helmet so he’s all excited. He’s working his way to be a captain on the team.

A handsome young man and the eyes give this the appropriate title. The colours are brilliant. A small picky point, I think it would have been a little better had you included his left hand and caught the stick inside the frame   Posted: 03/05/2020 19:59:41

Phil. Great colors in the image. The intensity in his face sets the tone for your image title "Determination". Well done.   Posted: 03/06/2020 15:16:03

Ha! I saw the determination in his eyes before I read the title. Well done. The net in the background is a good choice.Exposure is good also. I agree about the stick and left hand. The right hand and stick are just a bit blurred. At 1/640, it shouldn't be motion. DOF perhaps?   Posted: 03/06/2020 22:10:23

The expression on his face and his eyes make the picture. You did a good job on the background. Great colors on his uniform.   Posted: 03/10/2020 15:19:16

Phil, you've really captured the character of your child. His focus and intensity come through beautifully. Also, your choice of background was perfect.... it doesn't distract from Alex, but it adds nicely to the context of the photograph. Very well done!

I actually photoshopped another player out of the background. Surprisingly it came out the way I wanted to.. LOL   Posted: 03/13/2020 17:46:33
