Default Some pics from tonights Grays Athletic V Exeter City game

Star striker Aaron Mclean's 14th minute volley struck the post



In the second half out of favour striker Jamie Slabber scored the equalising goal, score 1-1, and celebrated sliding across the pitch with team mates Aaron Mclean, Michael Kightly and Dennis Oli



Aaron Mclean strikes home the goal which gave Grays Athletic the lead




And poses in front of the home fans (this pic was horribly under exposed due to him running close to the crowd, an area much darker than the main playing area)




Final score 2-2 as Exeter City scored an injury time equaliser.

Good stuff Mark. Aaron's cele (#4) is something a bit different... nice one.

Didn't have a great night myself despite the fact it was a pretty good game. I've put up the usual gallery here: http://www.photoshelter.com/gallery-...000WmVCfAbIQiE

Have fun at Kiddy on Saturday. At least it's an early kick-off!

Cheers Gav, the drive to Kiddy will be worth it as long as:

a) we win
b) it doesn't pee with rain
c) i manage to get back for most of the England game

Some more pics here... http://www.mgsportpix.com/cpg149/thu...s.php?album=10

Paul

a) 7th plays 19th, should be a good chance of achieving this one.
b) the BBC says it's going to be dry, that said they said the same last night and it wasn't! The jury is still out on this one.
c) Kidderminster to Grays, total journey 163.2 miles which the AA says will take me 2hrs 53mins. Chances of getting home during first half are fair.

Only time will tell!

Cheers

Mark

Great stuff guys (Marc and Gavin). I've got Histon on Saturday (yeah for the 1pm K/O!) which means I can get to Norwich to shop with the Mrs. and eat some tasty Wagamama noodles and drink Kirin lager!

Have a good week guys

Joe

This is a great shop in London's Picadilly http://www.japancentre.com/?cmd=cat&cid=118

Ref the straight horizons, yeah understand what you are saying. For me personally they are something that I can live with or without dependent on the content of the picture. For standard 'stock' shots then yeah for sure there is really no reason for them not to be. For grabbing/catching action shots such a someone scoring a header/volley whatever then the action being captured and sharp is, in my personal opinion, perhaps more important. If all comes together great, if it's sharp, captures key action moment but isn't 100% straight I can live with that.

Straight horizons is actually a bit of a misnomer isn't it? What we actually need is straight verticals, we don't have a horizon reference point.

Mark

p.s. I hope that link convinces you to stay here now.

Mark,

I understand what your saying but if I was an editor and saw your pictures with crooked horizons I would stop looking. It is distracting and takes away from the content.
