For the PG101 Creative Perspective Challenge...:)

Taken just last night at the softball field.. Isaiah is playing t-ball this summer and is their power hitter..;) He has had 12 rbi's in 3 games and we are proud!
I used the NIK filters on this and added a texture in PS for a vintage look.. Thanks for looking!!

Kara, I LOVE this image. One of my girls played tball and the other coach pitch softball - I got lots of action shots but nothing like this. Gotta add it to my list for next year! (or recreate it in the back yard LOL) :-) Excellent vision, beautiful image - it inspires me. <3

Congratulations for being rewarded for doing something you love. It is tempting to shift your interest and focus to what you think the judges like and this image tells me that you can do both; pay attention to previous winners and follow your heart.

Kara,
This has the compositional components, which Brenda Tharp taught in her class, Creative Visions. Add to that the tonality and extra creativity. This is an an awesome image and you have a well deserved grand prize winner. Congratulations! You should be very proud!!!! I am, of you. ~Bunny
