Default Football and Trains, pt. 3

Reference earlier discussions:

Anyway, I figured I would finally try to upload the best one of what I had, after trying all kinds of angles, etc. at the field. I thought this one had enough of the elements discussed in the earlier threads that it might have a chance. I also added a comment to the screeners about what I was trying to accomplish. I guess they must have agreed enough to give the image the ok:

Thanks for all the earlier tips and suggestions.

I do not know if I'm being influenced by the fact that it was accepted (entirely possible) but my initial reaction to it was that I like it. Was it one of the original batch that I criticized?

No, I think this was from a batch taken on a later, different weekend. I did keep in mind yours and others valid and quite helpful thoughts and suggestions about composition (and keeping faces visible) from the original images I posted here, but did not submit to the screeners.

I like where the football is. The kid, wearing the same number as the Carolina Panthers Jake Delhomme, seems to be tossing it idly as he listens to the coach. This is a nice shot.
