    Love your comment, the guy looks very over the game! Like the contrast of motion blur figure to still one.

  • Thanks shallay :o) he’s probably so used to winning, it’s no big deal anymore. His team have been unbeatable since last season!

    Smoking rugby! Well, pressure in the scrum leads to nicotine addiction maybe?

  • This is an ‘Aussie Rules’ footy game, keep up Ian, lol.

    Great shot Jane, I love the tone to the image. Yes great use of space but I might’ve cropped that blurred person out as I find it a bit distracting. A great shot for the Candid group, lovely work :)

  • Thank you Elaine, yeah I know what you mean about the blurred person, I debated with myself over it for ages but I thought it adds to the “candidness” of it, you know? I’ve seen a lot of shots with one person against a wall and I wanted it to be a little different. Somehow I enjoyed the distraction of that blurry intruder, lol.

    I like the addition of the blurred supporter to the left Jane.

    I’ve heard of a “one eyed supporter” here by the looks of things is a “one legged supporter” :)

  • Haha! You would think of something like that, glad you like it Reg, thanks :o)
