Snilldarmynd.
Ekki slæmt að hafa íslendinga í tveimur af þremur efstu sætunum.

Til hamingju kall.. snildar mynd í allastaði. Þessi mynd gæti einnig verið Nike auglýsing ef maður pælir í því....

Gaman að sjá að Ísland hefur aftur náð tvem efstu sætunum ;)

Very well done. I liked this photo because it brings the subjects into sharp focus and captures the action without filling the scene with unnecessary bodies.

Good job of capturing the action of the challenge.
Nicely focused.
Subway sign in the background a little distracting makes me hungry!
Good picture.

Wow almost identical shots back to back. I know these are the same teams playing plus the ball is the same. Anyway, this one is better then the other one, the colors are more vivid. I imagine this is one of the ribbon winners.

Very good composition. The lighting is very good, so is the DOF and you used the right shutter speed to freeze the action. You should do well with this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2004 07:08:47 AM
Thisis my favorite shot of the challenge so far. You did a great job freezing the motion and you captured great action and expressions. Great job.

Magasine quality shot. Excellent and perfectly timed.

Edit as I just realised "shot" was spelt "shit" *laugh*
