    My son got his uniform today and my wife wanted pics. I managed to screw up most of them, but here is one I though was ok. Would like to know what you all think. C&C is appreciated.

    Exposure looks alright to me, a little hot on his cheek, the net's coming out of his head, the ball is cut off, and there's a little extra room above his hands, but it communicates well and I always get a little giddy when people use location lights :)

    Thanks Sw1chFX! I appreciate the C&C. Completely agree with the hot spot on the cheek, and the pole/net. Funny i hadn't noticed that I had cut the ball off :wink:

    Thanks Again,

    JD

    Here is another I felt turned out ok. None of them are really very good though....

    I love the pictures. They are full of life and energy, and who cares if the exposure is off in some places.

    I like the 2nd one too. The boy is really funny.

    Thanks Mersad i really appreciate that! He had a really good time and let some personality show! There are times he is quite reserved when I get the camera out, I got lucky.

    My first thought was wow - what a great shot! Yes, when you look harder, there are a few areas for improvement. But the expression makes them wonderful!
