Little League is a great chance to get close to the action. This shotjust looked better in black and white (I felt). Camera was a Canon 30D with a Canon 70-300mm IS USM lens at 235mm ISO/1600 f/5.6 1/400 taken in the evening with an overcast. As always C&C welcome. Shot was cropped from the original size.

Nice "sportstrait", I think it suits B&W, However, with your permission I've bumped up the contrast etc as IMOit looks a little flat! Kind regards Graham.

I don't mind the edit at all. I just feel with the deeper contrast you lose the essence of the photo. Again it is how you look at it and I always welcome other opinions. Thanks.

I agree with Graham but think he went a bit too far. Somewhere in the middle is the perfect contrast point. LOL Personally, Id also USM it a bit...looks a tad soft.
