Canon EOS REBEL XS, Tamron 28-80 lens @ 28mm, ISO 100, f/22, 1/40 sec., single image HDR
 Last July Vonore Youth Sports conducted a clinic for it's coaches by a trainer named Barr (couldn't remember his first name). Barr was extremely cool with the dozen or so kids that were there and taught them and the attending coaches about training techniques especially targeting football.
 While I was there, I grabbed the camera and fired off several shots of Barr and the kids going through the training. Well, as the sun was going down I noticed this very nice sun/cloud display going on behind the football field press box and just could not resist running and grabbing the tripod and capturing it.
  Processed a single-image HDR on this shot and gave it a painterly look to give off a more nostalgic feel to it. It also brought out the detail and textures in the clouds that were normally washed out on the original frame.


  1. Nice image Jerry! I like the processing on this one, it really gives it a rustic vibe.

  2. Stellar work, Jerry, I really love a great image when it's processed in a painterly style. It's hard to do well, and you most certainly have managed to do so! Awesome shot here, my friend.
