    Randy,

    These are fantastic as always. These are high school kids??????? The one in photos 5 and 6 looks pretty tough. I don't know if I would want to go up against her on a football field or not. She looks pretty determined.

    Nice series Randy
    What was the treatment Sepia? I would be interested in B&W with a touch more contrast , have you tried that.I'm not seeing as much pop as in color and just wondering if a different treatment with contrast or level adjustments may help
    Thanks for sharing

    thx Greg....this is the team that won 109 games in a row and 7 state championships


    thx Mark
    some were serpia and some b&w (i think...i use all 3 that are in NC...my kind of treatment, 1 click and done)
    the color is what happens when the d300 hits higher iso-s....i'm sure it could be fixed in pp
     
  8. wow....
    that must be some kind of NATIONAL record as well.... no?

    The colors don't bother me and I understand that
    I usually do my own treatment for B&W just to add more contrast
    Thanks

    they are bigger everywhere now! Last year, my son went against a CENTER that was 6'10" and 294lbs. (he's 5'6" and 165!)
     
  18. Seems like that is the feeder HS for our team over here in Athens :biggrin:

    Great shots!
