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
cropped
Played with the levels
unsharp mask..basic editing...
sharpen/fade

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.
