    Yet another set of Rugby from me. Average light. Edgely Park created a blue cast which I managed to loose with some custome WB. By the end of the game I was underexposing by a stop. Oh and for the record, it rained - Yet again!

    A true war of atrition today. Bristol Rugby came away with yet another win depsite concerted Sale effort in the last 20 mins. There was no 'big' celebration, just sheer exhaustion. I shoot objectively, but I was so into todays game. I normally shoot with an i-pod on and listen to Ennio Morricone as his music moves me and motivates me and allows me to focus. Yes, I am odd.

    The kid in the skull cap is Dan Ward Smith and is likely to be named in the England Squad at Number 8 this week.

    Anyway, enjoy, comments good bad or even shocking are welcome.

    Lovely conditions to be shooting in Pete. I recall you talking about a very 'jaded' sports photographer you met when you were just starting to get into this.........are you there yet? :laugh:

    Pete - these are great! Some fantastic expressions :) The drop-kick and lineout shots are my faves - especially the former, as it's nice and sharp even though you captured the motion-blur...

    What kit do you use? How do you stop it getting soaked? What length lens?

    Hi Pete,

    Out of interest, did you do the custom white balance on the night in camera, or during post processing of RAW images?
