    Great action shot! It just looks a bit underexposed to me.

    Since your profile said OK to Edit, here is a sample of the type of pp that could have been done very quickly. Still far from perfect, I brightened the face and the ball a little and selectively sharpened a little as well. The lower legs and the arms still need some brightening but it needs to be done selectively or the brighter background will start to interfere with the player.

    The edited photo looks like her face and the ball are grainy, almost looks like someone did a head swap.
    I think the first one looks fine, specially for a yearbook.

    Good shot! You really captured her focus and intensity.

    The PP photo doesn't look as good as the original. Although, I too think it's a bit under exposed. Great Action shot though, I like the intensity on the player's face.

    That edit looks flipping awful.

    The original photo is very good. It's sharp, it's a great shot, and it just needs a bit of PP. It is underexposed and a bit flat. Fix those and it will be great!

    Hmm. The original looks soft focused and underexposed. I guess you need a better monitor. :sexywink:

    I have to agree with John here Skier. I looked at these on my laptop and my Mac and the original is sharper than the edit. The edit puts more noise into her face and uniform. I think you are right the original is underexposed and could use some post though.
