Default Scrum down

I'm the unofficial photographer for my eldest sons rugby team (they think I know what I'm doing lol).

I was waiting for a scrum to form, and noticed that one of the kids was looking a little fed up as it was cold and raining. I think I got lucky in capturing his mood.

Any HONEST comments welcome.

That's rugby! Nice. I'd attempt to darken some of the color spots in the background or clone them out. Kinda like having the fourth players shoulder where it is because if the middle boy's face was against a green background his mood might seem less dark.

Looks like you've captured him straining to hold his team mate up, the one that's fallen asleep ;-)
Either way, you've caught an emotive expression very well !

That's just how I used to feel when made to play rugby at school!

Nice capture.

Sadly, nothing fancy. I'm using the Fujifilm HS20 EXR bridge camera. I'm currently saving up brownie points for a DSLR next Christmas.
