The moment you've captured was well taken, also known as The Decisive Moment from a previous Monthly Masters, where I love the look of the two, the one seemingly winning and the other trying to figure out what to do. The processing style you've added is almost documentary with a somewhat newspaper look that bodes well with the style you are presenting here. Well taken! S-

Thank you Carol. I got swept up in all the action in the background as well, and didn't want to lose any of it. The one exception might have been the man in the background in the left center of the left border, who got cut in two, but whose extremities extended beyond the left border. It's not good to have someone impinging on a border ....... but then, I've always figured it's sometimes permissible to bend the rules.Carol W wrote:Bob, I really like this one! Initially, it made me think of a Rockwell painting. I was totally drawn into the picture. I love the expression and body language of the gentleman in red as he contemplates his next move. To me, the background doesn't in any way detract. It provides context as well as further interest.
