Summers Youth

I have a photo posted called Summers Youth. I would like to get some feedback on it. I took this photo at a local youth game for a friend. I am behind the Backstop shooting through the wire. I want to get some sense of how good or bad the shot is and also what I could do to sharpen such a photo despite having to shoot through the background. This photo is unedited.

Kelvin.

Re: Summers Youth

Action's well caught even if ball is slightly hidden against pitcher. Be better to see him off centre too, rather than in the middle - tho a crop of the RHS might help

BTW, removed your duplicate post to keep all responses in one place

Re: Summers Youth

I've had a quick go at this as you have the makings of a good image there. Obviously I only have the low-res file and it is a very quick edit but it is only to give an idea of what can be done.

Crop
Adjust shadows/highlights
Levels tweak
High Pass filter sharpen

Re: Summers Youth

I like the shot, good timing to get the pitcher and ball in those positions.

I increased the brightness and contrast a touch in Curves
Cropped a little and rotated a bit because the fence was bugging me
I increased the saturation, particularly green and red
Then just tweaked the brightness of the boys face with a levels layer that was masked



cheers

Dan
