I captured this photo of Rodney So'oialo, during the game between the All Blacks & The Barbarians at Twickenham in 2009, the Barbars won 25 - 18 in a superb match.

Superb action shot, with the illusion of motion perfectly depicted. You captured the moment Rodney So'oialo is pivoting, his left leg planted, his hands and right leg coming across. How did you get so close to the field?

Hi wilson, brilliant action shot it realy has got everything , lucky you to get so close to the action, the closest i could get was the fith row at the back of the posts, as you say it was a brilliant game, its only a pity the team i follow ( newcastle falcon's) can not seem to play like them he he

The dynamism of the action is translated well by the attitude and the vagueness of moved. The photo is pleasant and made well. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Excellent action shot, with the shutter speed just right to capture some of the subject sharply and the movement with a blur. The quality is pretty good considering the high ISO and very long lens used, presumably without tripod. Must have been a second-string AB side if they were beaten on the day!

the snapshot is great with the man in full action.The motion of the player is great as the result of the image.
Have a good afternoon,Danos

Superb dynamical shot, but I do not know what the play is it? I like the hair of this player. Looking at his legs, I remember that the sports is health. Barbarians - funny name.
Looking forward to meeting you in Lake District (finally :))

It feels good here all the concentration of rugby. I really like the blur effect that accentuates the dynamism of the action. Not easy this kind of photography, and you have mastered the difficulties, well done Wilson.
With all my friendships and a great weekend,

Wow! Great!!! My compliments, Wilson!
Yes, a lens 28-300mm can make good captures.
Excellent composition, colourful background.
Just a reportage from game!
delpeoples (58314) 2011-05-14 22:10
So you're a rugby fan? Looks like poor old Rodney dropped that ball. I can't remember this game but anyone getting the better of the All Blacks is a rarity. So it must have been a cliff-hanger. Great action shot, the blurred motion adds to the sense of movement and excitement. Excellent strong colours and good accompanying Note.
Thanks for sharing

The victory of Barbarians, I remebre this match ( on television). Excellent reportage shot, very dynamic with the attitude and the expression of the rugbyman well collecetd. Excellent photowork.

s_lush (16134) 2011-05-15 1:10
You have caught this highly dynamic and really decisive moment perfectly well, with the excellent composition, vivid colors, masterful depiction of movement and high quality. A very good sporting reportage photo!
TopGeo (38216) 2011-05-15 4:21
Hello Wilson! It is unknown what the game! Football is popular here and most fans of Manchester City!. Good picture! Regards
pierrefonds (66903) 2011-05-15 5:38
The point of view has capturel well the action of the rugby player. The light blur is indicating movement. The afternoon light is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.

Good catch of the player, sharp at 1/80s with motion blur adding dynamism and movement.

Excellent reportorial shot.
Interesting motion effect.
Good vertical frame and colors
pablominto (53746) 2011-05-15 23:34
And soon the football season is over, what shall we do in the weekends hehehe!
A pleasant action image where the motion blur enhances the impression something is happening...
Well framed situation!
Royaldevon (39344) 2011-05-15 23:48
Oh, I love to watch rugby, usually on the tv but my best memory is watching the sevens at The Commonwealth Games, in Manchester.
This is a great shot, full of inferred movement and very well composed, the focal player, strongly positioned. I love how the concentration of the player, and of the crowd, makes us imagine what is happening up pitch.
Have a good day,
ikeharel (72191) 2011-05-16 3:26
Not an easy task to capture such action, however, you had managed the best under the circumstances.
Great POV and moment taken, good compo.
peppe59 (14555) 2011-05-16 3:47
beautiful capture of sport, fantastic colors, the decisive moment captured perfectly.
Cricri (120143) 2011-05-16 9:45
Très bel effet dynamique, une scéne magnifiquement capturer au moment le plus fort, superbe image
paololg (31448) 2011-05-16 13:13
Ciao dear Wilson,
amazing shot! You have captured in perfect way this player, transmitting a feeling of movement and competitive spirit. A picture difficult to do, but you've done a masterpiece here. Congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice Tuesday!

de la bonne photo sportive avec ce qu'il faut de flou pour deviner le mouvement, peut-être par chance as-tu utilisé la bonne vitesse, mais cela donne.
sacimar (26273) 2011-05-17 9:12
interesting picture, you captured a good moment with a sense of movement, it's a different shot, I like it,
gunbud (34066) 2011-05-17 21:15
Fantastic action shot with a wonderful sense of motion.
Judging from the score this mush be a rugby match.
I see your subject is heavily taped for this fierce action sport.
skippy007 (12510) 2011-05-18 2:54
Hello Wilson, I immediately recognised this player as belonging to the All Blacks, not that I follow Rugby that much but they are a pretty famous football team at least in some parts of the world. Nice action shot, with just enough blur to indicate motion, the type of shot that one would see in the newspapers the following day. Well done.
gildasjan (43648) 2011-05-18 10:35
Une action très bien figée avec un sujet bien net qui se détache.J'apprécie également le flou de mouvement du ballon.
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2011-05-18 20:35
an excellent sports photography here. Like your composition and sharp focus on the player in action. Great light and superb colours. Great work. Tfs.
berek (50504) 2011-05-21 1:54
Super timing my friend. I really like movement and your nice framing.
Have a nice weekend.

And tomorrow we keep concentration for Manchester United against Barcelona. Vidić will take the Cup...If the foot is your favorite, friend Wilson.
Charo (51212) 2011-05-29 16:01

mesutilgim (95380) 2011-06-14 12:30
Wonderfull !! Perfect pov, perfect timing, perfect compo.
A capture full of adrenalin !
TFS and best regards
axiotea (21651) 2011-06-24 10:59
It looks like you were well positioned to take this action shot well captured. The motion blur gives a sense of movement, adding dynamism to the image.
I might have cut a bit of the down part, just to maximise the impact on the rugby man...but that is minor ;D
Best greetings from France
