Again it is in the eyes, but that is not the first thing that catches my eye in this picture. The first thing that catches my eye is the foot in the background. Even though it is a bit out of focus, what is it doing there. Doesn't it look like the foot was photoshoped in there or did this running back give that kid such a move that his foot ended up above his head or is that his own foot? What do you think?
The unique aspect of this picture is the eyes again. Look at the focus and the intensity of the eyes, they say it all. This is the first time that I caught the image with the correct shutter speed to read the writing on the football. The running back is in a perfect pose there and the focal point of this picture I feel is the ball. It is safe and securely tucked under the running backs arm, even though he is carrying the ball in the wrong hand.
The faded background give the running back the appearance of speed, and as you know speed kills. Is he ready to dash down the sideline or cut the run back. But in the end it is the foot I can't explain where it came from and who it belongs too.
