    Wonderful day to shoot today. No sun. Shot in cloudy white balance, manual exposure which did not really move, so you knew what you were getting. However, freezing cold, really, and I / my hands did not half feel it.

    Anyway, enjoy, comments welcome etc.

    Smashin shots - the expressions are class! No 1 looks like he's just dealt a killer karate blow!
    1, 3 & 4 are my favourites.

    Fabulous shots Pete. So clear, milliseconds of time frozen. I love how the flying mud and even sweat is captured along with the bigger picture.
    Excellent stuff.

    Superb quality shots again Pete, you must have been chuffed that you were able to get the shutter speed quick enough to capture the sweat coming off the players. Lovely isolation of the subjects (was it the Sigma?). What ISO were you shooting with?

    Yep, the sigma. I love it, its a great lens.

    I was shooting between 1250 and 1600 to get the shutter speed up mate. :smashin:

    Pete you just keep coming up with shots that attract superlatives:cool:

    The kit is certainly top notch but I reaaly have to give kudos to the man whose finger is on the shutter

    Very well done!!:smashin: :smashin:
