Taken in an empty lot down the road. I have been to see these kids a few times now and taken back shots. Cricket is a national passion in sri lanka and is played everywhere (rooftops to graveyards) whenever possible.

minimal post-processing - burned the ball and selective sharpening.

good capture, the house on the left mixes with the batsman. I wish you had the greenry all over, that would make a good contrast. 7

Very nicely shot layout is awsome, rule of thirds is very easy to find in this picture. The batsman being in focus and the bowler is just the right amount of blur. Depth of field is working well here. Like the way the ball got stopped and the action of the bat.

Nice action shot, your focus is spot on and your colors are perfect for this shot. Not much i can sugest to improve it :)

the DOF use is great and highly suitable.
Love the sharpness of the kid on the left.
I'd personally prefer to have this photo slightly desaturated.

A good capture and rather well composed shot. I would have liked to see the feet of the player in foreground.

How's That!! Lovely image. Nothing like those palid high-tech looking cricketers the Brits (I am one) have playing at Kennington these days. Thanks for a great shot, nice depth of field too.

Nice DOF and stop action on the ball.

Great action shot, pity to cut off the batsman's feet. Love the evening tones too.
