All the elements are there....ball, opponents, and faces. Focus is sharp and the crop is appropriate. Hard to find anything to criticize. Really nice shot.

Good timing and great expressions. The only thing that would improve this is if it was framed a little higher and taking out the dead space below and behind the players.

Have you any more to share?

Nice shot! I'm with Mark. If this is a crop I might suggest taking more off the bottom and adding more to the top of the frame. It is a shame about the hand being cropped off but it happens. Overall, very good timing and well done!

Great shot. I love soccer action pictures. FIFA U20 World Cup is being played right now in Canada, some great action in these games by future football stars from all over the world. Has me glued to the TV.

Thanks to everyone for the feedback. This is a cropped photo that was taken horizontally. I originally centered the crop on the 3 players. Do you like this tighther crop that doesn't cut off the arm better?

I agree, excellent timing, good focus and a much better second crop.
