This latest series is quite outstanding with the Patrice Evra, Alex Song and Andrei Arshavin ones being my favourites.

Thanks a lot mate! Also a football fan yourself? :)

You mean soccer right? :) :) :)!

I want to comment on the original 2 posts. The first one has balance issues. Note that the frame is left heavy in terms of subject. The centered player becomes the dividing line between a busy left side and no activity on the right side. The story or moment isn't obvious either. What are you wishing to show us with this image?

The second image is nicely balanced with an obvious story. The end of a play or beginning of new play. A decisive moment occurred and the players are reorganizing themselves for the next play. Obviously the last play was contentious in reading the body language of the players. The context of the game is evident with the field and filled grandstands. This is a professional game. A lot is at stake.

All that from the second image. I think that's what it takes to make a image communicate in sports. Good luck and keep up the good work!

Haha!!! I meant football, Bloody hell:P :P :P

First of all, I am very humbled by your comments, thanks a bunch that you took your time. :)

I pretty much agree with you on the first one... I missed something about it and it is probably what you implied to... balance. What I liked with the picture was that it kind of showed the struggle that the players go through in order to reach their goal.. let it be enough speed or technique... I managed to grab this I feel with another picture of mine I took on the next match... (Not going to post it here, because it is already confusing with this many pictures in this post.) Anyhow I totally agree with you and thanks a lot!

Thanks a lot for the comment on the second one. There are times during the game when you can collect some ideas what you would like to compose and have enough time to make adjustments... this was one of them... It was right before a corner-kick when the guys were gathering to find their spots and turn the game around with a goal .. and the other team had to organize themselves in order to prevent their tactic ... While trying to catch their breaths from their latest run, the defenders are organizing the team to form a great defense around the goal. These moments can be very nerve-wrecking :D Thanks a lot again for your great comment! I am very new to this kind of genre... and I have to say I enjoyed taking these shots sooo much! It is so amazing what you go through, how little time you actually have to think ahead to frame the moves perfectly... Certainly amazing and highly demanding for a job!
:cool:
