He either was about to head the ball or just had. Not sure which.

That s a pretty good shot.

Maybe slightly overexposed, and maybe overcropped a bit.

But still a very good shot!

While I agree that it is a little overexposed, I like the tight crop and find that the tighter cropped action shots sell MUCH better than the wider shots.

Nice action shot but I think you should tell him he may not want to stick his tongue out while butting the ball. He could end up talking funny for a while !!

Great shot!

Thank you everyone, Terry and Ron thanks for the input, it was welcome. The crop only took the sides off the shot there was absolutely nothing of interest in that part. I did not crop the height at all (I actually used a tighter crop when I sent it to the local newspaper). Your comments and ideas are always welcome.

BTW, the picture was taken after he struck the ball. Note the hair, as his head is accelerated backwards slightly.
