Nice stop action. There is a bit of a glow around the ball that is somewhat alarming, like it's radioactive, and there appears to be heavy vignetting.

I like the capture, I am just not happy with the post processing.

Nice use of selective color. Too bad with the faded ring outside the ball though.

In a feat of science and technology, Robbie the Robo-Goalie began play in the year 2018, and became an instant star.

the glow around the person and the ball are unnatural

The colors of your main subject are great - nicely saturated. I'm just not a big fan of the processing that is giving the halo effect on the ball & player.

great action shot - but the background appears artificially darkened with extreme halos around the subject and the ball

Great stop action shot but too over processed for my liking.

Well..marks for trying to save the shot using dodging but this really underexposed. The dodging also seems rather haphazard.
