I love this tommy !!!

I find the "S" to the side of his cheek a wee bit distracting tho ??

I really like this. It's a genre that seems to be less common these days. I can't pretend to know much about it, but this shot certainly holds my attention. Good choice to do it in mono.
Cheers, Jon

I think I prefer this to the previous one Tommy as you can see more of this fella and the toning suits the image Smile

It looks fine to me, though I'm no expert on portraits. You don't even want to!

Great expressive shot as Shaz says removing that S next to his cheek could only help to strengthen the shot. Great work Tommy.

Good Image...!

As a Candid Capture of the players expression at that point it works well.

As a Portrait it has some strong and weak points. The use of B&W accentuates the ruggedness in the fellas face and you've chosen a good moment in time.

But for me, judging this as a portrait, I think by using the cloning tool you could've removed the white 6 (or S) and also the bright bits, including the 9 behind the head.

I'd also have burned in the other players face as parts of it are the next brightest in the shot.

The inclusion of numbers competes for attention in a portrait even more that a bright area in any other shot.

I'm sure you know all this... but now you know I do too... lol.

All the Best.

Like this, brings back some memmories. Never got to play that far north but played Quaterback for the King's Lynn Patriots 84 - 94 then the team broke up and played for Norwich Devils for a little bit.
Nice shot. with around 45 player all over the place you bound to catch another players number or name, cloning them out might make the others look odd?
