Boys playing football seem to have no fear of the impending storm. The thirst for fun seems to be greater and perhaps they know that the excape route is not far away.

I like the simplicity of this. I have an eight year old daughter who'd play out in the rain all day if she could so I completely understand what attracted you to this shot.
I've straightened the horizon using the ruler tool, de-saturated it slightly and sharpened it.
I also removed the logo and something on the floor in the very foreground.
All done using CS5.
Hope this helps,
Thanks Frank. I'm new to this business--bought this camera in July. Cropping out that foreground object and the logo made me realize how distracting they were. I thought the portion on the right (the path) a part of the story--they know they can escape quickly when the storm comes. I'll look into the filters.
Thanks for the horizon reminder, Bren. I missed it being captured by the boys; I didn't take a global look--beginner problems I guess.
That's what post is for.
You concentrated, quite correctly, on the essence of the shot and ended up with what is basically a splendid shot. The minor things, straightening, adjusting the colour etc. should (and do) take second place to that.
You did well.
Glad to be of help.
