Taken during the Lycée Hubert Clément 'Gala' soccer match. The students of the final class played against the staff & teachers. They won :(

From my point of view, the rain came in handy, since it gave the pictures much more interest. There was no splashing mud though...
Unfortunately, the light conditions went from bad to horrible for action shots. I had to go up to ISO 1600 and still got only 1/800 seconds for this shot. The colours are weird and I lost some detail.

BTW, the grass pattern seems to be very difficult to compress for JPEG, I had to go up to 20% compression.

More shots from the match can be found here.

This is great! The colors are beautiful, and I feel like I am right there with the players, in the rain. Okay.. off to find my umbrella.
