This is... probably the most spectacular shot that i have ever seen of soccer. I mean, i have seen great action like this, but this also has spot on sharpness and focus, and great depth of field. Wonderful job man.

AndyTek - I personaly know both of them and there is no such thing as those two being the same author, and if so, they would have to be seriously quick zoomers becouse Andri's photo is much closer and clearer and Lárus photo isnt.

I think this is the best soccer pic in the challenge.

Good job Andri

Andytek... The two photgraphers just happened to be on the same soccermatch at the same time. So yes, those are the same teams, the same players the same day but different photographers. Both from Iceland still.

I just wanna say that this shot and the number 2, Grass explosion!, by Larus, must be disqualified because they are made by the same author: you can easly see that they are the same teams and the same players in the same day.

Nice shot but not correct

Well you got the invisible green ribbon. Congrats.

That's incredible - they're the same three players as in larus's shot, just a fraction of a second later. Same exploding grass, too.

I love this photo. Only one thing missing, the ball. This would be an 11 with the ball in the photo.

I like this! Very crisp, bright and vivid and the central placing really works here.

Excellent image!! Great stop acton on bodies and blades of grass; nice color with orange and black uniform and yellow and blue advertising signs; great expressions on subjects; nice focus; crop is just right to capture chunks of turf, background and immediate subjects. A winner!!!!

Fín mynd, mjög fínt. Það vantar bara boltann inn á hana og svo vantar að kroppa lengra inn í myndina, lengra inn í action-ið. Þá væri þetta helvíti fínt bara.

i thought i was wearing 3D glasses at first. great shot.

Great emotion captured here however the subjects are a bit too central. Maybe show a bit less on the left and a little more on the right to provide more context.

Perfect capture, except the centering and the slanting horizon?. The flying grass is a nice touch. 7

action shots which are both in focus and yet show movement are the pinnacle in my opinion, great shot.

Vá, til hamingju með þessa. Þú færð fína einkunn frá mér, enda stóð ég þarna við hliðiná og náði ekki nærri eins góðri mynd. Eina athugasemdin er cropið, hefðir kannski mátt skera nær, en það skiptir litlu.

Excellent capture. The flying turf really adds to the drama.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2005 11:36:41 PM
Normally I'd say that a sports photo is lacking without seeing the ball, but this is hilarious. All sound and fury (and grass, I love the flying grass).
