MUFC v West Ham Utd


Active Member
I swapped my usual seat in the Stretford End with my mate who sits very near the front rows. I managed to sneak in my gear and grab nearly 950 shots:eek:

Here's a selection of what I have processed so far.
I haven't really adjusted much though. I shot in RAW and adjusted WB and saturation of the green grass which seemed to be quite high.

Not up to Bristol Pete's standard but quite pleased anyway

Ronaldo on the ball.
Rio and Dean Ashton were slugging it all day. Great contest of two big guys!

Acrobatic challenge beating Giggs to the ball

Tevez working his socks off as usual. Scored a great goal against his former club
Rio immense once again defending the box
Evra - another fearless defender who has given everything this season.
Ronaldo using his head. Gifted with all round talent that boy!
Ronaldo again using his feet this time.
Rio doing the biz

Tevez with his usual determination

I think 'cos it was last home game of the season that the stewards were a little relaxed regarding cameras.
Never quite understand the logic though given that nearly everyone has a p&s or camera phone which nobody bothers with.
