Then there will be a few that I really like. That make me think maybe I do have the makings of a photographer somewhere inside of me.
|Sotonye Dikibo, out of action|
today so I got this candid
portrait. I just like this photo.
This shot of Sotonye Dikibo for example. In my initial scanning, this grabbed me. Maybe the reds - red shirt, red tones in her hair, red track. Maybe the depth of field - you can see Outlaw Annie in the background but out of focus. Maybe just the expression on Sotonye's face, the position of her hands. Maybe just the contrast from all my action photos. And maybe it is seeing her so calm and peaceful when I know on the field she is one of the best, most aggressive tacklers on the team. I don't know exactly why but I love this shot.
The next one that caught my interest is a one-on-one of QT Preston blocking. I think QT is nearly 6 feet tall but she appears smaller than her Mustang opponent. I like this shot because of the eyes of the Mustang player and the slight backward slant. Clearly QT is winning this contest.

bigger but QT is winning.
|Lucinda Benitez fighting a blocker, while the runner|
adjusts her route. CPR doesn't make the tackle but
does make the tackle possible by forcing the play
inside where the rest of the defense is waiting.
|I like the clarity, the eyes of the players, and the|
suspense - will the tackler catch the runner?

her down - on top of Tiffany. Ouch.
