I like the image, hopefully the tight crop will be liked, chopping the feet off isn't a bad thing with sports photography. There is enough of a story in this photo to enjoy it. The guy on the left looks relaxed and posed compared to the ogre on the right.

Pretty good shot. One annoying thing is the ball right over the ref in the background head.
