This shot was given to my Dad (who passed away two months ago) by his coach (who is still alive and well) last year when I visited with him and my stepmom.

It was an 8x10 that had some bad spots on it. I took a picture of it with my D200 and then did some PP on it and printed it out. I really like it for obvious reasons. I miss him and am glad I got something like this of him back in his hey day which I never tired of listening to him about how "real" football was played.

Mahalo for the replies. I really miss my Dad and this time of year was something special for us. I loved watching football with my Dad and he even took me to many games growing up in Hawai'i.

I remember seeing Mosi Tatupu running over everyone in sight like there were little kids amongst aman. He was awesome. Mosi went on to USC and then the New England Patriots. His son Lofa now plays linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks.

I agree, vIZnquest, that you have done a wonderful job in preserving an irreplacable memory. I like this photo as well as any I have seen in this forum.

But, I would also like to offer a tip of the cap to the anonymous photographer who took the original shot. When you compare it to the criteria that many of us use to judge excellence in a sports action shot, it comes out very well.

It is well-focused; the timing is perfect; facial detail is excellent, and drama is created by the inclusion of the opponent's effort. And, all of this is done without the technology with which we work, and take for granted today.
