Fort Wayne, Indiana rugby tournament. Glad I wasn't playing. It was hot and nasty, so the refs were calling for water breaks at quarters. Observe this Old Boy mixing it up with the young guys and felt admiration.

9 - This is likely my favorite of the challenge. Good capture and character. For me the character of this photograph has the most appeal. Criticism; although the colors seem slightly 'dull', I think that adds to this photograph and any variation would detract. Perhaps something done in pp with the 'overexposure' of #9's hair, but then that does draw the eye there. Maybe a different angle, maybe somehow making #9 'stand out' more, not sure. The seemingly candid nature of this photograph and making the viewer (me) feel like I am getting a glimpse at a run of the mill weekend 'scrummage' match, make this stand out, for me. ' Feels' real.

What a good image. I think you cropped it just right.

Senior citizen rugby..... Gotta applaud the guy though. Only thing I don't care for about this is the crop. I would have liked to see a bit more of the other players.
