  1. Here are some shots I have taken over the past little while of paintball. I am a player, so I don't get alot of time to take pictures but here is what I got.

    Comments and Criticism is always awesome!

  2. Nice shots Geoff! Number one is a bit dark, 2. you should crop to just him, 3. its too empty, his head isnt the main focus, 4 & 5 again crop more
     
  3. All of these were straight off the camera, I try to crop the photo as its taken, and not in PS.
    I agree, the first is too dark, but I don't know how to brighten it up using CS4?
    I will post a couple more now as I see.
     
  4. 6 and 7 are much better, but 8 would be better if you could see his face

    These are pretty good. My brother wants me to go out and take pictures of his team. I'm a little hesitant since I only have 1 camera.
     
  6. I love the sport, and taking pictures is just as fun.
    There are sooo many angles and shots and action pictures.
    Sometimes I am skeptical when I go out though, I fear I am going to get shot in the lens.
     
  7. High Geoff, this looks like so much fun!!, I noted you wheren't happy with P&P?. with your permission I've run a little lightening etc to a couple of your pics which took just a few seconds!, it's worth learning the very basics of PS:smile:. I tried to P&P #1 but it's either too underexposed or too larger P&P crop:frown:. If you wish me to remove the Edits just ask!. Kind regards Graham.

  8. Thanks, I don't mind you editing my photos.
    And yes, paintball is very exhillerating, to watch and to play.

    If you don't mind me asking, how exactly did you brighten the pictures? I am kinda new with the CS4 program.
     
  9. 6 and 7 are nice. Look like good focus and great color.
