Now, that's a decisive moment which shold be executed masterfully since you have only one chance :G

As for the picture, you capturedthatobservant boy witha peculiarexpression on his face quite successfully, imo

Gazing at you rather than the approaching football, which he seems tohave takenfor granted:-)Btw, I wonder ifthere areany of hismates around at the background where you cropped.

Hey,

now that was a nice series you linked to!

As for the first shot - that's great! I really like those "capture the moment" shots!

I tried to refocus a bit to increase the presence of the boy:



Regards,
Th.
