Sports In Action!

This weeks theme at I Heart Faces is "Sports In Action!".
Of the <millions> of photos I've taken of my boys playing soccer, I believe this one of Rebel will forever be my favorite.
Determination
There's no mistake - he's got DETERMINATION written all over that face!
I motion blurred the background just a bit to really make him pop out. If I were the other team I would Get Out of His Way!
Check out I Heart Faces to see all the great sports photos and don't forget to join the fun and add your own!

Great soccer shot! Love the intensity in his face. It's funny, I went through all my soccer shots and most of the photos that I thought were better for this week's contest were of the other kids on the team. Thanks for stopping by and yes, that's me who won Rita's blog redesign. I'm so excited!

I can see why this one is your favorite! The color is great - and the focus/blur contrast really helps tell the story.

I think I have found a new favorite site....YOURS!!! Both my girls play soccer and ONLY soccer. So I have a gazillion pictures of them (C:

I have a mac, an only use Photoshop Elements, which I noticed you have on some of your tutorials..YAY! I might actually learn something.

I love taking pictures for fun and love playing with editing features, though I don't know much and usually use free actions that I find.

I can't wait to keep browsing!!
