Love the angle of this. Boxing is probably one of the few areas where you would this kind of angle when shooting human beings at work.

The position of the referee is excellent and the way his eyes are fixed firmly on the guy being pinned against the ropes tell a story. The spectators on the far side of the ring add another layer of interest to the shot. The light above the fighters head is something which others may suggest to remove but I think it works perfectly.

The only change I would make to this brilliant shot is to remove the light in the far left of the image. To me its distracting and serves no purpose for the shot or the story.

Excellent. I would prefer that warmer clour tone of the original applied to the colour crop.

markst33 You can't just remove the light because you don't like it. It is live sport, you photograph it as it is and as it happens. No cheating allowed.
