realguatemala vs. c.d. real honduras

i know they are a little soft, i have been struggling with that, i think i have the focus but they are still a soft. they just don't pop like i want, i did use usm, maybe i'm doing that wrong.

Hello John!, looking at your pics there is nothing wrong with any of them, I think you are, like i was a while ago, unwilling to let USM determain your final shot!! howeverI have since found that USM is a very acceptable tool in digital photography (as long as it's not over done of course). Here's your last shot run through my "batch" action tool for my sports Pics, Dunno if you feel there's a difference ? but i think there is!. Kind regards Graham

Well done john. Great framing and with the exception of that last one, nice job in preserving thehighlites in an obviously difficult situation. All white unis in the mid day sun, with players of color...very tough.

I agree - you just need different USM settings and you'll get results more like what you want.
