Today’s photo is the first in a series from the 2010 NCAA Div. III Wrestling National Championships in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on March 5 and 6, 2010. I was hired by Augsburg College, Concordia Moorhead and St. Olaf College to shoot the event.

Here is the Augsburg team lined up before the night session of Day 1.

Unlike most the the photos I post here, I have edited this one quite a bit with the burn and dodge brushes, so no editorial uses of this photo. Of course, I still have the RAW file. I did notice that the flag has been overburned — especially in the web sized file — but that can be worked around, or better yet, the editing can be redone.
