Default Investec 2014 Hockey Finals

A few pics from a couple of weeks back of the Investec 2014 field Hockey Finals at Eaton Manor in leyton which is now the new home of ENgland Hockey.

It was a wonderful day and my first time back in Eaton Manor since I was at school.. we used to sneak in through the back gate to play footie or cricket as kids!





Scotland vs Ireland (Bronze medal finals)
















Cheers

Harj

What a great candid series. You certainly made it more interesting by including shots of the fans as well as the players. And what a cute shot with the little girl on the field with the player. Looks like you brought your street skill with you to the stadium. I also like the high speed action shots of the players.

Hey Steve

I tried to shoot my normal style but you cant be discreet with the beastie and even in that environment ppl clearly did not like having their pic taken.

This was my second attempt at field hockey and I did better this time around but the pics are nothing compared to what the pro's were posting within minutes of the event completing, and some of those actions shots are superb .. the candids before the game arent bad either.

Great shots Hartj, but did you do something to the colors?
Since that blue is very intense, still it gives a very good effect on the pictures !
