    These are some of the best shots from Saturday's Motor City Mechanics game, that I played around with in CS2 tonight.
    I think the effect really draws attention to the players in each picture.



    Your thoughts?

    I like those alot, the blurred effect works .

    The matting works well I think too.
    Matting helps the presentation so much for any photo , IMO.

    They are all good, but No. 3 works especially well. You really get the feeling for what the goalie (not sure if that is the proper name) feels like with everyone coming in toward him.
  6. These are very nice Dave...they work really well. When you say you "played around with cs2" what did you do exactly, if I may ask....Secondly is this exclusive to cs2 or is it capable in cs


  7. Great ones, Dave. Love #3.

    Very nice processing to your great hockey images. I like how the blur draws your attention to the player. Nicely done, Dave.
  9. Shot #3 is very good. Could be a contest winner.
  10. outstanding processing and matting!
