Day 23 Header

Drafted in Dan's mate Max to help today. Action shot of him heading a ball!


  1. A really good action shot. You have captured the sweat very well.


  2. Great capture! The lighting on this adds a lot of depth and drama. The colors compliment each other and the composition is very strong. Solid work!

  3. Wow, that is just awesome! The backlighting is simply divine, and the water and sweat flying is fantastic! Good timing having the ball still in the frame. How many shots did it take to get that?!

    One nitpick is that it is very obviously a studio shot, and yet the action screams that it should not be. Perhaps a green background or a multicoloured one to simulate a field, trees or a crowd would have been more convincing (if you have one!)

    But it may also have reduced the drama of that lovely lighting, so maybe not. I dunno....!

  4. What else can I say that hasn't been said already?
    The lighting makes this a very striking image and a different take on portraiture.

  5. Beautiful stop action shot! I think I would paste him into a large stadium just for fun. (He would probably love it too)

  6. That's m'boy. Great shot, love the detail in his face.
