What I will say though is that everyone I met and talked to this season was amazing, and I am going to be really bored until next season. From a photographer and spectator point of view, it is an amazing sport that is both serious and fun at the same time. Anyone who gets the chance to go to a bout should. Again, I look forward to next season.
On to the photo. The un-edited version is farther down my flickr stream, but this seems to be the much better version. Basically, I had a 16 x 20 frame laying around that I always wanted to put up, and figured that I should pick one photo from the season and put it up. I selected this one, which happens to be from the last home game. The un-edited version has a lot of yellow, so I did the old hand-coloring technique, and colored Snot Rocket Science (still my favorite name) back in. The problem was the motion-blurred arms, and it took three of us to get that to look good. I was very grateful at the time to have such good help, and even more once I got the photo up in my office. I am quite pleased with the results, as well as all my time spent at Romp N Roll. Is it next season yet?
