Very nice!! I can't help but wonder what happens if you had put the player in the foreground instead.
Love it anyway.

Cool use of textures (and color, of course) to separate the foreground from the background.

Wow, that looks fantastic! I especially love how you juxtaposed the desaturated image with the color image!

Did you have a plain-black background and add texture later? :O It looks great. Like it's carved on a black-granite face.

Best senior portrait i've ever seen! As a mom of two boys that play sports, I would be thrilled with this!
