Gosh, I can totally see why this went to the cream of the crop! I hope you made a copy of it for this fellow? It will be his favorite photo ever taken of him while being a football player!

It's so dramatic and deep. Was he praying? Meditating? Afraid of the big team he was going up against and giving himself a pep talk for inner peace before game time?

Awesome image in every way. Natural lighting was sure the way to go here, too!!!

Big congrats on it being a finalist. I'm surprised it didn't go gold. Your gallery is very impressive, Cassie Girl!
