Child on ATV

Sport/action photo of child riding an ATV quad bike.

This action shot of my son on his ATV was captured using a Canon 1D MK2N, 70-200 f/2.8 @ f/5, 1/400th, ISO 400.
Heavily side lit by the low winter sun, just enough light has made it through to light up Damien’s face, while the blown-out highlights don’t bother me.
The noise in the skin tones reflects an aging camera and the fact it’s been cropped by about half: later model pro Canons hold together better, but it’s a shot I’m very happy with anyway.
In Post: cropping, dodging (bright areas), highlight recovery, burn (face), sharpen.
