2, 5, 6 and 7 are my picks. LOVE the mud bath.

7 is the winner though for me - wonderful!

Great series!

all but #1 are

Sharp where it matters, action was well captured, I really like that. It's all there - the feeling of movement and the fights, the facial expressions... wonderful!

I bet these are also great with selective color or b&w/sepia.

Thanks for sharing,
Th.

Great shots Graham, like #5 the best great composition and use of DOF(Player running with the ball tack sharp &the blurred players in the background).

If you could get a shot of the guy who does the laundry. That would be a photo.

Seriously. These are some of the best sports action shots I've seen here.

"kinda muddy"? looks like it was hard to tell friend from foe in some cases! nothin' like a little "slip-slidin' away" to make for a fun game... makes the ball kinda hard to hang onto at times, though... :G

Thank's for the comments Terry, I think by full time i could have sold any shot to any player as they all looked the same:lol:.

Nice to hear from you again Tom:-), thanks for the input.

BEECEE, Thank you for the very nice comment. I would think it would be hard not to get good shots given this sport & the playing conditions.

squirl033, Yes it was a joy to shoot. There where more than a fair share of ball spills:lol:. At times it was like trying to hold onto a greased pig.

Kind regards Graham.
