Challenge: Focal Point (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-550D Rebel T2i
Location: Webster, MA
Date: Mar 19, 2011
Aperture: f/6.3
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/500
Galleries: Urban, Action
Date Uploaded: Mar 21, 2011

It has been a long winter in MA and it felt great to get outside again in the sun again. I took a lot of shots this weekend but this is the one I decided to go with. It was the least staged and most natural with a prominent focal point.
The challenge was to catch this at just the right spot and not get hit.

Wonderful photo. Ratchet down the aperture and only get the feet sharp and this is a ribbon winner. It's still awesome though.

Very busy photo for me. Hard to find a stand out FP.

You captured the action well but this seems more like a snapshot. The background is quite busy.

Focal feet are good to distract from the rest of the picture . . . this seems very snapshot-ish to me. I think if Junior's face would have been more visible, I would have been able to score higher. 4
