Adding Drama to Backyard Cricket?

I took these photos yesterday during a XMAS backyard Cricket Match (Thats what we do Down Under in the holidays).

I wanted to tone, dodge, burn these the images to create a more dramatic, nostalic look - have tried a few things but have 'retouchers block' today.

I thought I would throw these out there to see what a collection of creative minds could come up with.

Cmon guys - if nothing moody or nostalgic comes to mind can someone assist with some flames around the ball....

Hi jasosmith,

As if you Aussies don't get enough batting practice.

Had a quick play with your image, and this is what I came up with.

Bit strapped for time at the moment, so if you need to know what I did just ask, and I'll post later.

I like it - I was thinking along a different line but I think my Nephew would love something like this.....

Cass - you have obviously used some type of motion blur on the ball. Can you elaborate.....

Re: Adding Drama to Backyard Cricket?

Jaso, I copied the ball onto a new layer, enlarged the ball, ran the wind filter on it (maybe under stylise?, had trouble finding it myself), erased any parts not required such as parts of fence on enlarged ball copy. Being a quick and dirty used the rectangular selection, lol
