Hans, really nice football image. The colors are bright and really grab your attention. You can see the eyes of nearly every player and even the pose of the player with the ball is great. The frame is pretty tight at the top but still ok. I can see why it won an award. Bruce   Posted: 11/02/2021 10:38:55

Hans, well deserved award. This image is full of non stop action all over. Not even three of the Invader's players could stop the Lion's QB. The image is very sharp. There is no amputations around the frame, and there is separation with the players in the background. Perfect timing. The white helmet is almost touching the frame.   Posted: 11/02/2021 15:38:09

Hi Hans,
We judged this image in the SAM Circuit (this is the first time I judged an international based in Asia). I was on panel four. Collectively, we scored this pretty well, but the other two judges weren't inclined to give it a medal. I thought it was very good and should have been an HM, but the other two judges disagreed.
Anyway, the action, colors, and faces give this lots of visual impact. Nice shot. Gerry   Posted: 11/28/2021 00:26:32

Hi Gerry, thanks for your comment. I submitted another rugby image at the SAM circuit that scored a HM, in my opinion my photo stops the Lions Quarterback was the better one, there you see that the judges can also have different opinions.   Posted: 11/28/2021 07:20:06
