Truly a rural shot in a small SE Missouri town..where Friday nights in September is a big night...opening night of the HS Football season.

Hand held
Played with the levels
unsharp mask..basic editing...

thought it would do better..but..distant sport photos don't really do well on DPC...I just liked how my photo turned out..and I wanted to share it...and even though you could question the "rural"...it really was and is small town America.

This is a stretch for me on the "rural" theme but at least it's after dark and well composed.

An interesting vantage point makes for a stunning picture - though I'm sure a skilled hand at post made a lot of difference as well.
