Well, most of you know I'm partial to landscape and flowers....

But a guy can't eat just vanilla and expect to understand what tutti-fruity chocolate mellow nugget taste like....can he



So....I took the same toy camera Bynx has to my son's varsity baseball game with the hope of licking on a different flavor :?



I got this shot of him (sport/action) stealing third base. The dust kicked up at the begining of his slide and makes it, well....dusty.....



How'd I do?







Here is the original if you'd like to help me make a better one from it, as I want to get it (with a few others) printed on a poster in a collage format, and give it to him.

Like the action , but the dust hurts the overall image.

Friends in the 'Landscape Photos' forum taught me that setting unsharp mask (USM) to a very large radius can work wonders on atmosphoric haze. I got some improvement on your image from successive applications of max radius (100) in my ancient PSP7, so it's perhaps worth some experimentation in a better image pocessor.

Good luck!
