    Im open for CC!
    I tried to post 3 shots of him but 2 were too big. I thought i would still share this one that was able to upload to flicker.
    I did a little PP on it from RAW format. I do notice that the focus or overall quality is so so but i was peged at 5.6 to keep the speed up a little so there was minamal motion blur and also i had my non-stabalizer lens peged at 300mm as well. Im hopeing for not too bad concidering.
    I tried to get as low as i could when he was on the ground.

    so thaaats what they look like...

    I like the composition. The way there is some blur but the head remains sharp is actually kind of interesting IMO.

    Probably could use a little bit of a contrast/curves adjustment. Looks like it might be a hair overexposed? I think just setting white and black points would work either way.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thx, I think I worked a little much on the curves. Maybe backing it off a little I guess?
