the decisive moment of the "try" is well captured,
his flying posture is nice,
the speedy scene of black uniform on the green grass is beautiful, and his pink skin color is very real,
the fascinating ambience is expressed well,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Bonjour, cher Wilson,
Il fallait être Anglais pour inventer le rugby. Qui d'autre aurait pu penser à un ballon ovale ?
[Pierre Mac Orlan]
Très bel effet de ce jeu très viril avec cet arrêt sur image.

Rugby is a fantastic sport for strong and young men.
In Belgium see we that almost not playing.
You action picture is very nice through the moment image.
Sharpness and clarity be superb.
Good captured, nice composed, TFS.

A good capture the action on the rugby field. «thr point of view is showing the action of the player with the rugby balloon. The light has a good effect on the colors. I am not to familiar with that sport, have a nice day.
JCG (35129) 2011-02-16 6:54
One has the feeling that this rugbyman hedgehops with his balloon !!! Not easy these photographs of sporting exploits, it is necessary to seize the good action and I find that here you succeeded by giving even dynamism at this splendid try… A good photograph, well done Wilson.
With all my friendships and a very good end of the day,

on voit bein que ton appareil suivait les sportifs, ils sont bien plus nets que la pelouse tout autour. Une photo soignée au feu de l'action.

Hi Wilson, As an ex tight head prop from schoolboy days rugby it is still a thrill to see good rugby action photos such as this. The guy getting the try is nice and clear, can even see his tongue out! in his moment of excitement. TFS. Murray

France has to play there on Saturday, VS England, for the 6 nations tournament, and I will watch it from here in Bangkok! Well caught scorer in a spectacular dive!
pablominto (53746) 2011-02-17 1:09
I'm not quite familiar with this sport but I know the basics!
This is a fine action capture, that shows the moment so well with the player hovering 10 cm over the ground...
Well framed, with some motion blur to emphasis the action!
jlbrthnn (76039) 2011-02-17 12:50
The movement is rapid, the fall will be hard, but it will be a good try. The kind of sports photo that is rarely seen on TE. Good sharpness on the player. Bravo.
Have a nice evening
delpeoples (59684) 2011-02-17 14:10
You're a Rah Rah fan eh? Never would have picked it :) Can't say that our Wallabies are doing so well, so it's nice to see other teams playing such beautiful football. Great action shot, I like the panning effect of the background and the other player. It really gives us a sense of dynamism and fast movement. Nice work, have a beautiful evening.
bukitgolfb301 (44789) 2011-02-17 14:30
Hi my dear Wilson

Hello Wilson. This is a very nice action shot here with the fellow almost on the ground in a little sharper focus than the man running behind. Thanks for sharing.
Cricri (124814) 2011-02-18 5:43
Belle prise en pleine action et au moment le plus fort, superbe

UlfE (14641) 2011-02-18 11:29
A wonderful sports photo. I love the action. Ben Smith is appears to float above the grass of the playground. Perfect timing. I am also impressed that he is relatively sharp. An excellent photo-job. TFS and have nice weekend!
TopGeo (38216) 2011-02-18 12:18

Ricx (13495) 2011-02-18 23:01
Hi Wilson, firstly it is great to see an action rugby shot at the point of scoring a try. its like a cricket shot at the point of being bold.. nice and sharp on the man. not easy sometimes. I have been to many a rugby match and never thought of taking my EOS D. I guess you also had great seats at Twickenham. Well done and TFS this Saturday. Rich
jemaflor (102213) 2011-02-19 8:44
Good sport report with this well taken picture, good dynamic effect, taken at the good moment, bravo !
jafadabret (56501) 2011-02-19 10:29
Une photo très difficile à faire !
Tu es arrivé à prendre ce moment décisif de très belle façon. Le joueur plane juste avant de marquer l'essai.
Du grand art !
Fis2 (105102) 2011-02-19 12:54
A very interesting scene.
Good reportorial photo.
patdeph (35748) 2011-02-20 9:54
you have surely shot at one of the best moment of the match,the posture of the rugbyman is incredible,and a little bit funny.This is really excellent!
BluSimo (9392) 2011-02-20 10:04
the nearly completely stopped body of the player to earth and all the rest in motion, what a photo! : -) a true decisive moment, well done!
have a great week

adramad (48960) 2011-02-21 4:56
A great sports photo, when catching the ball is caught in a pride, an image that conveys the sensation of movement dramatically.
Sharpness of the picture and good color.
Have a nice day. Best regards.

Angshu (56760) 2011-02-28 6:05
Not easy to take pictures of such a fast sports action, but you've done really well here. You focussed well on the player as he lunges for a try...a decisive moment indeed!
gunbud (34066) 2011-02-28 21:56
Great action shot with the rugged rughby man seen in clear focus as he takes a hard fall on the green field.
Clear colors and sharp details to this fine shot.
skippy007 (12510) 2011-03-01 1:51
Hello Wilson, Nice action shot with just enough blur on the ball carrier to indicate movement. Not a lover of the sport (especially since Australia's demise) but I love sport, I remember a certain "Jonny" Wilkinson" well ;-) Well done.
muratcaloglu (2) 2011-03-03 10:40
its a great sample of decisive moment..
Vasa (515) 2011-03-03 15:15
Great decisive moment, Wilson. For my pleasure do the same with Nemanja Vidic in Manchester United.
So glad to see you again, friend,
serp2000 (45536) 2011-03-05 19:50
Great! You captured so expressive moment, Wilson. Well done.
I can image, how many photos you had make for this result. My compliments!!!
Didi (60590) 2011-04-08 10:22
This is a nice catch; a very decisive moment of the action.
