took this last night after practice. not sure why, but i really like it. threw some LR filters on it and this is the current final result.
be as harsh as you need be

I do know it is tilted to the right, but i didnt have a chance to fix that yet

I also like the treatment as well. like mentioned I could do without the bags. I also wish the feet were not chopped off. good image though, alot of mood/atmosphere

thank you for CC.
interesting that you say that about the bags/shoes, since i thought that including them was what made the picture a bit more interesting. As i was working on it, i thought that it would have looked maybe too plain without it.

Hards80, the chopped of feet part is indeed regrettable, but in my defense, i stink at this anyway Plus, i was sort of roaming around the gym and randomly snapping without too much vision.
Hence the CC is much appreciated as it will teach me better.
Thx

I really like the photo, and think it would speak to a lot of people. Back in the glory days, I was an athlete and am familiar with the worn out feeling shown in the photo. Its a good memory and reminds me of the feeling of accomplishment associated with the worn out feeling.
I agree with YOU in that the bag itself ads something, but I agree with the others in that it stands out too much. Could you possibly tone down the color just in the bag? Its color makes it stand out and distracts, but I do think its presence in the photo is good.
