1st: Quiet but powerful moment. Love the isolation of the one football player in the smoke before he runs out onto a crowded field of cheerleaders and band members. Beautiful colors working together too. Be sure to size correctly though — this is a very low res file that we’d love to see in high res! 2nd: Different and weird in a fun, curious way. Compositionally sound and good thinking on cropping in than going with a bigger picture feel here. 3rd: Really nice quiet moment before the game. Gives the player a moment to himself before having to go out and play on a loud field. Love the cell phone light that’s giving a dramatic shadow of the player.
