Meditative

This was taken just before a competition last fall.  I just love the look on his face.  I feel he is meditating to prepare himself for the very difficult drum major competition ahead.

I took this from the grandstand with a 70 to 300 mm lens.  The lens was at 190 mm when the shot was taken.  ISO was 400 and 1/800 of a second at f 4.8.  Hand held as I did not have a tripod with me at the time and now I have a monopod which I would definitely carry with me at the next games.

I have done nothing to the image — I thought about putting a vignette to put the others in the background a bit, but decided I like the expression as well.
