2008 Bowl For Kid’s Sake photos with a touch of my own

As I prepare the photos to send to the ad agency for preparation of the promotional posters for the 2008 Bowl for Kid’s Sake fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Winona, I thought I’d add my own unique touch to really make the photos “pop”. I use a number of different post-processing techniques and I feel that the photos are much more striking because of it. Now, whether or not the ad agency uses them for the posters, that’s to be determined – however, it would be nice to see a distinctive photo relay an important message.

Compare my “finished” version compared to the regular version. I’d love to hear any comments that anyone may have!

Here is WSU basketball stars, Jonte Flowers and Jon Smith, finished & fully post-processed:

2008 Bowl For Kid’s Sake event photos – Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Winona

Tonight I had the pleasure of volunteering my time for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Winona at Westgate Bowl & Wellington’s Backwater Brewing Company here in Winona, Minnesota. The “Superheroes” were a list of “who’s who” in Winona, MN and I believe everyone that was involved had a great time in creating the photos. Here’s a little sampling of the Winona’s superheroes, from Mayor Jerry Miller to standout Winona State basketball players, Jonte Flowers & Jon Smith:
