    Hang Time

    This is an image from a game earlier this week that I decided to have a little fun with.

    Nice one! I like the sepia on this. (at least it looks like sepia on my Mac) I really need to step back from the "corporate" sports shots that I do all the time and play more. Bravo Larry!

    Thanks Daniel. I don't do this often but I enjoy punching up and image every once in a while.

    Re: Hang Time

    I like what you've done here, Larry. It gives this image an iconic, nostalgic feel. I don't think it would be an appropriate treatment to use all the time. But for a one-off image that isn't meant for sports coverage, I think it's great.

    A couple of slight criticisms - the composition feels a bit tight to me. He could use a little breathing room. Plus, since you titled it, "Hang Time," I really wish I could see how high off the floor he is.

    Thanks for sharing this

    Thanks John, yes I tend to crop a little tight most of the time, just hate to have things in the frame that don't add to the image in some way. The frame I threw around this one at the last minute did crowd it a bit.
