Pick of the Pix Series, Trials Punches

Specs: 1/125s, 85.0 prime, f/2.8, ISO: 1250, Saturation manipulated in Photoshop by Jeremy Hanna

Erica Germain is delivering a perfect overhand right to Alicia Yates and I've been lucky enough to get it at the point of impact and reasonably in focus but with a slow enough shutter speed (1/125th of a second) to show some movement.

We've played with the image in colour and black and white. This colour version was manipulated in photoshop by Jeremy by reducing the background saturation and enhancing the lighting.

I reckon the black and white version looks pretty good too though. This is definitely one of my favourite images from the trials.

Here's another favourite. It is sharply in focus and taken at 1/400th of a second has made it nice and sharp. Pity most people shut their eyes when they punch :-)

Here's the rest of the pick of the punches from the trials...
