Female rugby player observing other matches...

As always, comments, suggestions, thoughts appreciated.

Really liking your BW conversions, Bob. Nice tonal range, contrast.
The shallow DOF causes a few double takes to the guys. As does her appearance. Both make the shot of interest. Like the framing. Wish you had a bit more preserved of the guy at the edge, maybe a tad more room below her fingers.

And @Rustybug

Thanks for the feedback - the fingers cannot not be fixed, the right edge can but I've got work to do on technique for handling that.

Glad you like the conversion - been having some successes with LR4.1 combined with CS6. I find myself becoming over-stimulated from TMS/O (too many sliders/options) with SEPRo2

Thanks @AuntiPode,

I owe the subject an apology - I should have properly began the post a "Lady rubgy..."

Frankly, promenade, costume, bravado, and game posturing aside, I found most of the participants with whom I spoke (did not speak to subject - just the way it happened) to be most gracious, thoughtful, and particularly appreciative that someone outside the rugby community took the time to attend the tournament. Many yes sirs, no sirs, and thank yous.

For full disclosure, I have not attended the "socials" that routinely follow the play. Indeed some suggest a rugby match is merely an excuse to hold a "social". In my experience they are in the minority. And, injuries are common and often not trivial, well beyond scratches and bruises; a hefty price to pay for a pint or two, or three..

regards,

Bob

Great shot! Until I scrolled down to see the full picture, I would've guessed that was a man! I enjoy the contrast on this image, the tones are excellent.

Thanks Ben,

Scott always tries to offer cogent and helpful commentary. I know he has been a strong advocate for improving the PC culture, civility, and discourse - distinguishing features that set the PCForum apart from others, what I've read elsewhere.

regards,

Bob
