Terrific sports shot and right at the goal line....very cool! Sharp and good contrasting colors. Hope this does well for you. Bumping up after second look. :-)

do i care for the image - no
are the colours some of the best contrast in the challenge - yes

Soccar jerseys and jockey jerseys are both prime examples of colour contrast, i'm surprised there werent more. This is a great action shot also. Looks like the guy is gonna kick him in the face... maybe i do like soccar after all hahah.

Croatia vs Sweden? (I knew about the Croatia shirt, had to look up Sweden)
Nice action shot, a decisive moment. Colors are a bit over the top perhaps, the yellows saturated so much that there is a slight yellow blowout. Nevertheless, nice shot. 7

What excellent vibrant color! What's on the goalkeeper's eye?

This is really a great shot! Fantastic stop action with vivid contrasts and tones. Exceptional clarity and lighting too (in what I'm sure was less than ideal conditions). Very good work.

Nice action shot. I would love to have a lens to get such a shot. There is one major distracting element in the shot. It is a large white spot ont he goalie. I'm sure it is probably supposed to be there, and not dust, but I would've removed it still.

This is color contrast at its best. I love not only the yellow and blue but the great non blurred stop action. 9
