Ready to play football? Day 1/365

Spent a great New Years Day in the backyard tossing the football around. My son loves to get his football jersey on and helmet and then punt the ball to me and if I catch it I’m supposed to run it back for a touchdown! Here’s my first photo posted of 2012.

ISO 1000 F/2.8 T1/3200

Here’s the original Raw File(saved as a JPG for posting)


Looked pretty good but I wanted to focus the eyes on the nose of the ball…


So I played around with the sliders a bit in Aperture(Mac App Link) which led to the final image.. I think it’s an improvement.
