Very nice series Graham! You did a great job capturing the action with good facial expressions. Minor comments:
  • #1 seems a bit soft compared to the others (perhaps too much cropping?) [/*]
  • 2, 4, and 6 seem to have a bit much saturation compared to the others[/*]
  • several of them could be straightened out a bit - or the field is really sloped
    [/*]
  • you might be able to sharpen a bit more to really make the subjects stand out..[/*]

Hi jshoenr, thanks for looking in. I don't know whats happened in my upload to photobucket but # 1 looks sharp on my monitor:?, The saturation isn't anywhere near how it appears in the link either?. Maybe i've sized them too small in the upload opption:?? I did this because they are posted on another UKsite with strict size restrictions. Your right about the pitches being askewI should have tried a bit harder to lessen the effect!!.


I pesonally arn't a big lover of too much USM as i think, (though it does make them "POP") it makes the subject look plastiky!!. Kind regards Graham
