    Sepak Takraw is a sport common in SE Asia and very popular in Thailand. It is a bit of a cross of volleyball and football. You can use your feet or head (but not hands) to get the ball over the net. The game can be very fast and the skill of the players can be very impressive. I saw these guys playing in a car park near my hotel in Bangkok. I only had the 50mm lens with me, so I could not get any close ups.

    Weird...

    I'd agree there is quite a lot of empty space in both shots that does not add to them.
