Hi again. :)
This auto thingy seems to be assigning me the same photographers each time. lol I don't mind, I'm getting used to particular styles, and I feel like i know some people's children. :)
Anyway, I wish that the focus on this were just a bit better. It's not bad at all. You actually have to study the pic to 'find' anything wrong with the focus, but it does seem that the right side of the photo is a little sharper than the left side. See the thread areas in the ball? We get much greater detail out of the right side, than the left.
The lighting is ok. Somethings about the lighting I like, and somethings I wish were a bit brighter. For example, I think that it's great how you have reduced reflection on the ball, this could have been much much worse, and you controled that nicely. But, the shoe seems a bit strange. Someone mentioned it looked "flat" but I'm not really sure how to describe it. It's not 'dark' but it's not really well lit either. Maybe flat is a good word?
The angle and framing/cropping are alright. I like the angle on the ball, and how the foot comes out of the top of the frame. I do wish though that the bit of skin wasn't in the background. That seems to be a bit of a distraction.
Overall a nice shot. Is this your son playing soccer?
