Excellent frozen action Rugby scene, sharp resolution of combatants with facial anguish, and blurred background, and in natural colors.
I am a big fan of American football which evolved from rugby, and is our biggest sport along with baseball.
Happy trails to you,

Excellent shot Takero, and unusual subject. The expression of each of the three players is very good. Dynamic, well framed and pleasantly sharp.
Have a nice day,

Hello dear Takero,
amazing capture of this interesting scene from the passionate rugby game. The postures and expressions evoke so much interest and drama. The excitement and tension evoked have a great impact due to the effective closeness and stunning sharpness you have achieved. A very fascinating scene, almost imperceivable by the naked eye, even by those who would happen to have the perfect point of view. Excellent work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,

Another spectacular action photo. My, those teeth guards are about to fall out of the mouth of the fellow on the ground! I like rugby better than American football, it looks braver. American football players just hide behind heavy armor! Besides, rugby seems to go faster.
