The Blue player is from my team (Benson Soccer). I took over 1,000 young soccer players around the world to play in tournaments for 32 years. Competition was very tough.

Here's a sport I know well! Did she get a card? I thought the ball was between the Benson player's legs, but then realized it was turf/dirt.

Great crop.

Just normal play in Denmark, not foul or card given. Thanks for looking. Bruce   Posted: 01/10/2020 01:19:34

As usual, you have captured great action. The players are sharp, the background is nicely out of focus, and the crop results in a good composition. I don't see any way to improve the image -- unless the ball were in the photo. I guess you can't have everything.   Posted: 01/24/2020 21:12:24

Great shot Bruce. Looks like the opponent is starting to practice clearly showing pain.   Posted: 01/26/2020 14:48:24

I think the photo is technically sound for sharpness, focus, and enough depth that the background is out of focus. The expressions are telling the story to me, and your low angle helps show the faces. I think you should consider cropping the left and right sides up to the players. To me, this is just blank space and does not add interest.   Posted: 01/26/2020 22:00:14

Once again you are sharing a wonderful soccer image with us! I really like the body positions and expressions of both players. The simple background is a plus ... a rare find at a soccer match.
I wonder if I might consider a square crop for this particular image? Great shot!   Posted: 01/30/2020 18:06:56
