Hi everyone - this is my first post. I have really enjoyed the YouTube videos, so I thought I would submit an image and give it a try.
I shot this image of a pole vaulter earlier this summer during an open track and field event. I had to get super low to the ground to make sure there were no distracting elements in the background - just the blue sky.
I took this on a Canon 7D with a Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS.
In Lightroom I wanted to create a little bit of a "hard" look without going extreme, and I did this by boosting the contrast, clarity and vibrance.
Let me know your thoughts, please!
