Hi Bruce, you have chosen the right crop in the photo, which shows the fight for the ball in the scene well. The Brazilian player in the background in the dark jersey who pushes the Dane down when jumping up to get into a better position and the two players from Denmark and Brazil in the background who are watching the scene closely, show the essential in the fight for the ball.   Posted: 11/12/2020 02:42:58

Thanks Hans, I am really missing shooting the football here in USA . I wish I could come visit my son in Frankfurt. Bruce   Posted: 11/18/2020 16:51:47

Hello Bruce, I too like this image. I like the image stopping the action and everything is sharp. That lens is such a sharp one and I am very jealous of it!!

Well done   Posted: 11/16/2020 11:29:42

Thanks Dan, You are right about the lens. I also shoot wildlife so sharpness is essential. Looking forward to a normal world so we can get out more.

There certainly is a lot going on in this photo, but the mass of players seems to work OK in this composition. I like the way the original has been cropped. The location of the ball in the upper left nicely offsets the mass of players in the lower right. And I like the concentration on the ball by the player in the lower left.

The extra set of legs (with the blue shoes) is a little confusing, but overall this is a nice composition. Also, I should add that I think the image is just a bit over-sharpened.
