Hi all, I know you're all board with the soccer theme, but here'ssome from the paper'sassignment thisweekend, (some Rugby coming soon honest)!!:-), Trailed down to the Rugby ground on Sunday to find they'd moved the cup-tie to a town 30 miles away in the space of an hour:shock:, due to water logging!. C&C as always welcome. Graham.

Graham, another good series, it really shows the difference of keeping within the range of the lens.

I would say you have too much foreground in quite a few shots so can crop that out but that's the main thing to change in these.

I like 2 and 5 best out of these.

Thanks for the input Mark you're right of course the foregrounds are too long :sad:. My reasoning for this was aposting perspective, i didn't want squat wide ones and long thin ones. Next time (If there is one!!)iI'll try to appropriate the correct ratio. Kind regards Graham.

Great timing on a difficult, at least for me, sport to shoot! Im always 4-5 frames behind the action. Id up the contrast on a few of these-thatd be my only comment. Well done.

Wow!They're already playing it like Rugby :-)I like hard fought games, btw ; )

So I hate the ones who fall easily in the game causing pauses!!

I found your frames literally freezingsplit seconds very demonstrative and exciting

Bahadir thanks for the comments,I agree local football (soccer) can sometimes resemble a rugby match:lol:, and the only time these guys go to ground is when they can't get up again!!:-)

Gary, you know the challenges of our weather!!:-), thanks for the comments, if you look in Saturday's paper the #1 was used 3/4 back page in HV express.

Kind regards Graham.
