Candid Moments - III : This is another candid moment.In the first image of the series,you have seen the recruits sitting on the sidelines and watching the soccer match.Here you get to see them in action and ready to score a goal inside the playing arena.The passion for soccer is very much evident in this image,where you get to see five men engaged in a tight situation to score or to save a goal,but the goalkeeper is totally nonchalant about what is going to happen in the next moment or so.Truly candid,hope you like this one too.

Good tonal range and sharpness in this superb photo-journalistic shot of the football sporting event. Also a good decisive moment capturing the players leaping into the air. Excellent graphism and framing utilising the rule of thirds and the golden mean. Have a nice week!

A good capture of this goalmouth incident. An action shot taken at just the right moment. Nicely presented here in black and white it would look well on any sports page.

Nice action photo, very dynamic scene on the ball field, I like this frozen movement of players

I would expect the referee - if there is any - to have trouble telling the teams apart since they all seem to wear differently coloured clothes. I find their way of dressing peculiar, otherwise this is a good shot of an intense moment with at least three out of five hanging in the air trying to reach the ball with his head.
I take it for granted this is not an I-league game :-).

Hi Farhat, good picture of this interesting scene of a football game, very well captured in this black and white image with good sharpness and light. Very good job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good night and happy week.
All the best from southern Spain.

I think it is corner-shot and nicely lofted. But perhaps the goalkeeper's position is not correct.
But your shot has scored the goal with fabulous timing.
A perfect action shot in monochrome with great clarity.
Tfs a great shot.
macjake (73059) 2013-10-08 10:38
yeah, the goalie seems to be stuck in mud :)
and yet there are 5 guys battling for the ball.
I like the netting of the goal, looks cool here.
enjoy your day
Miguel82 (27752) 2013-10-08 11:46
Good evening Fabbs, you captured these militaries soccer players during a match and a corner kick I guess, they are all in extension jump to take the ball
A brillant action b&w version image I like
Fis2 (107416) 2013-10-08 13:07
Excellent reportage shot!
The black and white increase this emotions.
I like it.

The more I'm coming to understand and enjoy football, this puts a smile on my face too see. A fitting title for this shot, the live action freeze frame suits the theme with impact. I really like the facial expressions which are visible, lending to the candid nature and competitive nature of sport. A solid shot with much interest. Nicely achieved, and good conversion for black & white. Have a great day ahead.

A really good candid moment, and presented perfectly in black and white. Great scene.
Sorry I cannot leave a green smiley, the site is not allowing me today for some reason.
Thanks as always

hi, really a beautiful moment here. The view from football ground is captured nicely. Nice presentation in monochrome. Tfs.
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-10-09 7:52
Very nice action shot of those players especially in B&W. Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
UlfE (14641) 2013-10-09 10:39
A really fine sports photo. Your timing could not have been better. The photo is very sharp even though it is an action shot. On the other hand side some motion blur would not have mattered. Personally I perfer it this way. TFS and have a nice day!
clic (18552) 2013-10-09 11:41
What an intense 1/250s shot, so 'saturated' in emotion that color vision at this critical instant is useless to feel all the action potential!
Well done catch!
danos (103212) 2013-10-09 22:17
nice the B/W snapshot with a lot of men to watch the event from the passion of the football players.Good view as presentation too.

Interesantan tekst o mestu i trenutaku.
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazan trenutak sa fudbalske utakmice ...
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.
An interesting article about the place and the moment.
A good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated time with football matches ...
Have a great and successful day, all the best.
ikeharel (79161) 2013-10-09 22:52
A fine clear pic. while the playeres were on a constant move, Farhat.
B&W is a good chce here, due to the white-net that came exraordinary nice on photo.
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-10-09 23:29
excellent dynamic composition,which conveys well the competition and fighting spirit of the players.Also the choice of B&W for this photo was in my opinion a good solution.
Have a nice day
kato (11630) 2013-10-10 5:31
You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the spectacle in which boys are playing soccer game in front of the goal, and substitute playera/the audience are watching it in behind.
Oceania (5202) 2013-10-10 6:15
The ball is in the middle of air. You captured it at the right time. India likes the rest of the world, people love playing soccer. See, these young boys are so happy. Thanks for sharing.
jhm (160917) 2013-10-10 6:27
Nice action photo, very dynamic scene on the ball field.

très très belle compo NB sueprbe ce jeune qui jouent au foot dans ole mouvement et l'action sueprbe vue.
Bravo et amitié
adramad (49962) 2013-10-11 14:01
Moment of danger to the goal, you have captured an image with a lot of vitality, with the movement of the players, with their willingness to put the coveted goal .... its realization in B & W gives it timeless air.
Beautiful range of colors, on a beautiful day light.
Magnificent lighting and great sharpness to recreate in the details.
Very well done.
Enjoy a happy weekend.
All the best.
ourania (51103) 2013-10-11 14:09
I thought the goalkeeper looked to cool in front of a scene like this, I hope he wasn't too self-conscious because of your lens:) I like the way you captured this scene including a lot of information that makes our impression of this game more thorough. There's excellent depth and clarity and your composition gains value from the intensity of so many expressions and postures (the goalkeeper excluded:) The lighting and the grey tones are well rendered and pleasant. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
bayno (18344) 2013-10-11 23:23
the fisherman is not alone...check well :( not only think about the feedback...
jacquest (19047) 2013-10-13 4:45
This is a good sport action shot and the black and white format gives a special mood. The movement of the palyers has been well caught and the ball high in the air adds a sense of strong action and speed.
nikkitta (17068) 2013-10-13 17:48
Problems with your last post, it s not shown ?
This is a good shot of daily life in India, but, as few as I know while playing football the hands cant touch the ball, this is the the more important foul
Apart from it, the capture was taken at the right moment,ball at the air and players also
Cricri (126732) 2013-10-14 10:49
Une belle scène d'action, très dynamique, super bien mis en image, bravo
mcmtanyel (29668) 2013-10-14 20:06
I like the timing of the photo. You have managed to freeze at least two players off the ground. The ball hasn't gone off the top edge, either! Congrats and TFS.

Namaskar dear Farhat
