[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While my son, Juan Miguel (2 y/o) was playing his basketball, I tried photographing him but he was so active that I wasn't able to get proper focus. Then suddenly he paused, looked at the ball ring which was too high for him, almost as if he was thinking of making the shot, and voila, it was the perfect moment.

Beautifully conceived shot. Well done for seeing the possibilities from converting it to monochrome - it works really well. Would have been even better without the UV. Remember, the less glass between natural light and the sensor, the more clarity is possible. Excellent depth of field. Yes - I love this shot!
