  1. Each year I have to grab some captures of the coaches, this is our new head coach in his first year and doing a fine job if I say so myself.
    I shot this and then desaturated and then using a layer mask painted in the pool reflections back in his sunglasses. Taken with the D2X and the 700-200VR with 1.4 tele

    Mike, that's a great shot...He's going to love it. I like the effect of the pool being the only color in the shot! Well done.
  3. Love the shot Mike and your post processing is unique and interesting. Way to go.

    Outstanding shot Mike

    The angle of the light is superb. You really have the vision it takes to see the shots! Love the sunglass treatment too!
