Very cool, how you got the players in a line is a feat in itself.

Nice one, Subs!
Suby & Sinem: I just think I was really lucky bro. smile

Not bad. I think you could do without the player on the left.
Suby & Sinem: For me I think the payer on the left balances the shot, Tried a crop without him in it but did not like it. smile

nice post processing, feels like cut-outs from a b&w newsprint from the 60's. could pass for a Nike ad.Ü

I had a different feeling than Timmy, i think that the player on the left balances the pic and the photo would look awkward without him... unless the photo is taken vertically of course.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Barry, glad you like this work, promise to come visiting soon, been so busy with work that I have not really had tome for blogging. Please keep visiting.

I dont really like football tongue
Suby & Sinem: Neither do I, but that don't mean I will not shoot it and make it look good. I dislike all creepy crawlers and see no point is shooting them, but when I am brave enough I do. So get out there girl, shoot a sports events, it's harder than it looks and will help you become a better prosumer. :d

This one's not my cup of tea, possibly for the same reason as E Etomi, but even before I read that, the image did nothing for me.

Black and white seems to be flavour of the month and it has its place, but I'm not sure it's best for this shot - depending on the colours they were wearing of course!
Suby & Sinem: Dislike football as well bro, but, when in Rome, shot whats in front of you grin

The fact I made this monochrome was because of the 3 edits I did, I really liked this one. The colour version of this shot is awesome, but I just prefered the monochrome smile

I will email you the colour version

(Had to go back and comment on yesterday's photo, as it didn't appear when I first visited.)

Love this shot Suby, with your one word (and one letter) comment. It does seem to be all about him in this shot. The b&w stresses the point, as does only him being in focus. Nicely done!
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Micki,

I have queued up my shots cause I know I will not have the rime to blogg as much as I want to over the next few days, hence no comments smile


er.. not sure about this one. the players don't seem to be part of the pictute, it's like they're superimposed (esp. with the white edges around the guy in front). Was this deliberate?
Suby & Sinem: Yep it was, I just liked the feel of it that way. Well thats me for you. Always like to be different grin

Very well done !
Suby & Sinem: Thanks :d

I like the way the guy at the front pops out of the scene, he almost feels like part of one of those steel dummy walls that Beckham would place in front of goal to practice free kicks round
Suby & Sinem: That cracked me up, but you know what, you are right, he does loook like one of them dummies smile

I think you need the chap on the left to tell you it's football, otherwise it could be just three guys standing in a line somewhere. I like the shot, but I don't know why. smile
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Ellie, don't forget it is just my unique take on everything football related, so I don't think the ball needs to be in the frame, this was when the players where walking off the pitch at the end of the match, now how many photographers tend to take images like these? Not many

Your style is great!
Suby & Sinem: Me smiling big time here. Thanks grin

OK for me, processing seems a bit weirdish for me.
Suby & Sinem: And that my young friend lays the aim of this edit. Not expecting everyone to like it, All I need i8s one person to say wow, thats okay for me. grin

They look a little like cardboard cut-outs to me. I think the processing is a bit too much. I still like the first one best.
Suby & Sinem: I actu ally wanted the guys to stand out and I also wanted the the image to look as different as possible from anything out there but also still look good. Don't forget, it has to have the Subter's unique angle to the shot.

Old school safe and every image looking the same as what 1 million other photographers produce bore me. Out of 30 images I provide my clients, I always throw in 2 or 3 images PPed different, you know what always happens, they want more of the "crazy" PPed shots, and you know what that means?

More money for the Subster. smile
