Pick of the Pix Series, Portraits #2

Specs: 1/60s, 70.0mm, f/4.5, ISO: 1600, contrast enhanced

These images were taken at what I recall was the  last pre-tournament training session in Quebec City prior to the 2007 World Champs.  Above is Daniel (DJ) Thompson.

The portraits that I wrote about yesterday had the opposite contrast between subject and background. The above image has DJ's face highlit with a dark background against his profile giving a nice contrast. His posture emphasises his powerful shoulders and his tattoos.

The image above was taken at the same time is head coach, Mr Dave Ballard. Note also the background contrast against his face which makes the image work.
