Before&After | Soccer

I'm using this as a little sneak-peek opportunity for a shoot I did during my brother's soccer game a few weeks ago. Something I learned here was how annoyingly hard it is to get an image like this completely in focus, and I nailed it here.  Oh, and #13 (whoever he is) is a pretty awesome. Just sayin'.

And my edit, on using premium elements...

I forget exactly what I did here, but I know everything was pretty basic - cropped, brought up exposure/contrast, perhaps done some things with curves...but that's pretty much it.
