nice shots, love that English countryside. I stopped by a cricket game when I was working in Swindon, I have no idea what was going on but it was fun.

They seem a little under exposed... Theres not much action in these and really need to be face on.. good backdrop for a cricket ground though :)

Lovely shots.

I spent three hours one afternoon at a St. Louis Cardinals baseball game, in direct sunlight and 105 degree (F) temperatures, with a friend from South Africa. He spent the entire three hours trying to explain cricket to me, and I spent the entire three hours trying to explain baseball to him. Neither of us made any headway whatsoever with the other. It was the longest three hours of my life.

Having said that, cricket looks like something I would really enjoy watching if I could just understand it!

They could use a little more contrast and saturation I think, but I agree that there is no action in them. Maybe if you had gone a little bit more to your right to get the batter's faces (they call them batter's, right?)

I do not know this sport, I understand that for practitioners taking seen to be different for me the main thing was to take the expression of the player

I repeat that the contrast is perfect if you see this photo on an iMac 27" but on the other monitor the contrast is poor

for you another with more contrast

I think with cricket the trick is to get the ball in the image if possible and on shots

#1, #3 and #4 -that would make the difference
otherwise as others have said - more face on

great background and location for these images

Are these cropped images 180mm on 7d = 288mm

i guess not as you had a 100-400 zoom on the camera

I took a load of cricket pictures on full frame (film 20x36exposures) and used a 300mm lens and ended up having to get a 2x converter to get this close

so would be interested how much you had to crop

the last time i photographed cricket was at a week long event and spent most days taking pictures - great fun
I also stood just to the side of the sight screens (the white boards) with a tripod
Also took pictures of the presentations - sold quite a few to the club afterwards

thank for you comments

I do not crop anything in this picture I used the 100-400 it's the original size maybe it's imagehack who crop this

It's the first time I saw this sport in live and I'll not see this sport for a long time because in my country we do not practice this sport I took these pictures during a trip

I saw your photo gallery you take some nice picture

I understand what do you want to explain if a day I meet this sport again I try it

I allowed myself to enter the field without permission so I could not really move me especially as a tourist it is not always seen

one with the facing like you explain it's not the best picture

A few tips for those who fancy having a go at shooting cricket and have no understanding of the game:

  • Most Cricket pitches run North/South which is good for the players and photographers. Position yourself just off to one side to shoot at the batsman at the far end or the bowler as he runs towards you.
  • There are six 'balls' bowled in an 'over' at which point the action then starts at the other end. The batsmen do not change ends at the end of an 'over'.
  • Don't rush. There will be plenty of time between 'balls' and 'overs' to change settings.
  • The fielders are widely spaced. Move around the boundary to 'line them up'.
  • Despite the player's outfits, there's plenty of colour happening all around.
  • Keep an eye on the fielders. Some do nothing but others are very vocal and don't mind playing up for the crowd.
  • Likewise, the crowd. At the big games there will be plenty of characters to photograph. At a village green game, you may even get wildlife wandering around.
  • And if you're really lucky, something like this (external link) will happen.

Big dreams, small wallet.

Cricket is very interesting game to play and to watch also. I like it very much. The pics which you have shared here are amazing and the ground at where you are playing are very nice place to play.

thanks a lot

if anyone recognize this place that tells me I do not remember the name of this village
