Playing ball

This was one of 2 photos that I submitted to the PhotoFest Japan contest. Actually, I whittled down my selection to about 5, and +Agustin Rafael Reyes , +Joanne Yu , and +adithya anand helped me choose the final 2 (the other of which I will upload soon).

Though I didn't win, I did get honorable mention for this picture from +Alfie Goodrich , which felt good πŸ™‚

Many thanks to the inimitable +Agustin Rafael Reyes for the help in post-processing! πŸ™‚
I tried to re-do the processing myself, and this is the result~

    I like this shot because of the light – especially the rim-lighting on the balls and the boy. Plus the moment you pressed the shutter – with his foot about to touch the ball – shows perfect timing. There were lots of great shots shown that evening.
