    Okay, guys, I resized the pictures manually and reposted them. They turned out much better than the last set.

    NOW tell me what you think.:biggrin:

    The action looks good, but the IQ ended up being a bit odd. Sorry John, I am definitely not the sharpest Crayon in the box when it comes to post processing, so offering some help isn't something I can do with confidence.

    I'm with Frank Great action But IQ is off
    Tighten crops probably not reasonable having used a 70-200
     
  4. Like that No. 19 shot and the B&W conversion though it's a tad flat, a little more contrast and you have a winner.

    Yeah, I don't know what happened to the IQ. I let PS Elements resize them to 500 pixels @ 300 dpi.

    I'll redo them later, and only one at a time instead of in a mass process method. It seems to work better that way, but I am busy until roughly Midnight, so don't expect anything right away.

    So guys, please keep in mind that the IQ is WAY better than what is being displayed. I wouldn't want this thread becoming strictly a "Oh, I like the shots, but the IQ is horrible..." post-fest.:wink:

    I used a Red Filter effect on that picture, as his jersey was the same color.

    I wonder, though, how a Blue Filter would do. Would it bring out more of the skin tones?
     
  7. Give the yellow filter a try with varying intensities, that may be the ticket.

    John you got some great action, perfect timeing on them. #14 is really good.

    Okay, images are fixed and ready for the new batch of comments.

    All I can think of is that Elements' "Multiple Image Process" thing got everything screwed up.
     
  11. I'm no PP expert but as I remember the original set, these look much better as far as color is concerned, the B&W conversion is better too.

    Yeah, I put some extra contrast in that one. I like how it turned out.

    No, it bounced off his outstretched hand.
