Phil,having gone through many tryouts in my years being the last one cut from my high school basketball team , not making the third team of my first university soccer team and having run many tryouts as a soccer coach for many years, your image is interesting to see all of the hopefuls in your image. I might suggest cropping out the person behind the coach and the exit sign. Bruce   Posted: 05/07/2020 18:55:15

I like the story in this photo, and I think the photo conveys it clearly. I agree with previous comments about cropping. I think I would also crop out the hot spots in the upper right.   Posted: 05/07/2020 21:22:28

Phil - agree with the crop suggestions even if you get too narrow a pic.   Posted: 05/07/2020 21:56:05

Hi Phil, I also agree with Bruce that you should tighten the neckline on the left to cut off the perons behind the coach   Posted: 05/08/2020 03:20:12
