Colors of Life : Soccer
I have uploaded another soccer image,but this time in color.Hope you like the colors and intensity of the game.We are all waiting for the next soccer world cup to be held in the capital of world soccer,Brazil.
A little tidbit on the history of soccer : It has a vivid and interesting history in the world of sports. Early evidence of soccer being played as a sport finds occurrence in China during the 2nd and 3rd centuries BC. In China, it was during the Han dynasty that people dribbled leather balls by kicking it into a small net. Recorded facts also support the fact that Romans and Greeks used to play ball for fun and frolic. Some facts point to Kyoto in Japan where kicking of ball was a popular sport.
It is said that early growth of the modern soccer started in England. Some amusing facts even mention that the first ball used was the head of some Danish brigand. It is said that during medieval times, the old form of soccer used to allow many ill practices like kicking, punching, biting and gouging. The main aim was to carry the ball to a target spot. People grew so fond of the game that they would throng the field all day long. Sometimes the competition grew fierce and masses got so wild that there were frequent incidents of violence during the game. It is also said that soldiers admired the game so much that they missed archery practice to watch it.

A well presented action shot with the ball clearly in play. I like the juxtaposition between the various players and their facial expressions. The image has good colours and sharpness.

Nice action shot of these guys playing football. Lovely saturated colours on the football strip.Some interested spectators in the background under the large tree.

Une belle scène d'action. J'aime le flou sur le ballon mais aussi la grande netteté des joueurs. La lumière est un brin trop forte à mon goût, mais il faut ce qu'il faut.

Fine stop-action view of the soccer combatants in their colorful uniforms.
I do not know why, other than a weird macho teenage philosophy, but in high school we played soccer bare-footed. I learned to kick the ball with the side of my foot to avoid breaking toes head on.

It's a bit amusing that you have posted a picture of Indian football the same day that I show a photo of Indian cricket. Football is certainly more colourful, but I would say that cricket captures the mind of India in a stronger way. Your photo is full of colour and action and with good sharpness on the closest players.

It is truly the world's game, no? The team I follow (Mexico!) is still uncertain about making the World Cup -- they play home-and-away against New Zealand later this month. They looked very good with their younger players in the Olympics (Gold Medal!), but they have not been good in 2013. "May the best team win."
I like this shot, Farhat, for showing the dynamism of movement. I wonder if a slightly tighter crop might have focused our attention on the central figures? Just a thought!

the vivid colours are very attractive and the players are well placed in the frame displaying interesting action. I like how colours and sharpness make them stand out in the hazy environment. As in your other football shots, this sscene looks like a choreography too. There's an amusing symmetry between the three pairs of players. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Colorful shot plenty of live, illustrating well the way football is played, introducing it with an informative note
I noticed you are not a fun of this sport because one team is having the (red and blue) colors of the Spain main team ,Barcelona , where Messi, the great argentine born player plays, also the colors of San Lorenzo, an Argentine team

You're capturing well this soccer scene by a good timing and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the spectacle where the players of both teams are vying in work. It's also interesting in color contrast of ywp team's uniform.
jacquest (18927) 2013-11-09 5:13
This is a good action shot where the movements of the ball and players has been well stopped. The colorful red and blue sweaters adds to the image and the focus on the action is sharp.

A good decisive moment shot with excellent sharpness and a nice warm cold color contrast between the red and blue. Nice motion blur of the man's foot and football, or soccer ball as it is called in some countries. Wonderful density levels and good saturation. Excellent graphism against the pale green bg grass field. Tfs!

Superbe scène d'action, colorées et bien cadrer, un beau moment capturer

You gave me the idea just now to photograph a football game using the opposite effect: That means sharp football moved by motion-blurred players!
I'm leaving soon for a 4 months stay where many soccer games occur every weekends, so I will practice controlled blur using a tripod.
A superb action shot indeed.
Thanks for the idea!
See you soon!

a beautiful moment captured. It is always a tough job to shoot football match. Sharpness and focus is acceptable considering the motion of the game and I can say I enjoyed it a lot. Keep clicking.
josepmarin (58357) 2013-11-13 2:25
a spontaneous and fresh scene here, you have caught perfectly the attitude and the facial expressions of these football players.
I like specially to see the uniforms of the team of my city, F.C. Barcelona (Barça).
And a nice blurred background in a good 3D effect.
