A couple of pics from the 4H archery tournament earlier this year.
I used telephoto to compress the foreground/background.
I wanted the shooter to be sharp, but the target only to be sharp enough to be recongizable.
Was trying not to have the target compete with the shooter for attention in the pic.
What do you think - would you have gone for all sharp?
When I went with a portrait orientation to get the whole bow in the picture, I lose the subject - the bow is as tall as the boy and I end up with a frame full of nothing.
I may be too close to the picture to judge - is it still recognizable as a bow when I come in this close?

I came; I saw; I shot; I shared.
