    Youth Football

    How is this edit? Cropping it this close really exposes the slow shutter speed I was using. I leveled the horizon and went with auto WB of the RAW file.

    Youth Football

    Thanks vintage. It was pouring out for 3 quarters so spent a lot of effort keeping the umbrella up and lens clean. I also spend most of my time crouched although these here may not be the best examples of that haha. I will look into the white too tonight on my monitor and see if I can notice it...

    Youth Football

    Gotcha. Its actually a look I was going for. Im just not into the straight, normal photo look. I try to balance between photo and norman rockwell ish paintings that maintain a sense of realism yet add something different. Definitely a personal taste thing.

    Youth Football

    That's good to hear wmccree. In the end I hope that's the type of thing I want these kids and their families to experience when they look at these...good meMories. I will try your suggestions on the diving photo. And what did you mean by more natural? Just the horizon or the post processing...

    Youth Football

    Thanks Sean. I notice the greyish tones on one of the photos but the others look white to me. But that's not saying too much. I'm also not sure if it was the post processing or the fact that some of the jerseys were more soaked than others as it was downpour throughout the game. Which ones were...

    Winter bird shots

    I agree. Grackles are actually cool looking birds. Their eyes are crazy and love their iridescent feathers. Colors can look pretty wild when the light hits them right. We get them by the thousands here though so they can be kinda pesky.

    Down on the Farm

    Thanks Steve and I agree with everything you said. I had have plenty chances to reshoot the location but the lighting or way I saw it wasn't right. I drive by it quite a bit at work so if it doesn't catch my eye I don't stop to play around. Hopefully the next time I do I can put some of these...
