WOW! I NEVER in a million years expected a Blue for this. A lowish score and some great shots from others. Thank you so much. had a bit of a busy year and haven't been as active. So this is a real blessing.

The image wasn't my best in that series of shots, but it was the best that I could use with minimal editing. the sun was a little bit strong so the shots needed some levels adjustment.

AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT'S COOL? I wanted to be a sports photographer growing up!

Where's the ball? Without it, we just have a bunch of guys jumping and standing around.

It looks like you had great access! Tip: the first thing I learned on day one of sports photography class is that you should always strive to get the ball in the picture. You're 1/5 of the way there :)

Like the composition, but for me there are two things:
1. I think it should be in colour - at the moment, the players are really indistinct (I'm saying this with no idea what it looks like in colour, though)
2. The horizon should be straightened to balance the feel of the photo.

Good luck!

bet you wish you could fix the slight tilt. Nice capture, would've been spectacular with the ball in the shot.

Incredible photo and detail and expressions on their faces. It would be a 10 if the top wasn't cut off there!
