Good Morning to you all at ePz.

Thank you all for your most wonderful comments, messages and votes following yesterdays uploads of the Welsh Kicker Leigh Halfpenny yesterday. Todays ensemble is a series of successive images showing a scrum. "Hope you Like"

I hope that you all have a great day, for me I think a spot of painting and a walk along the promenade might be in order.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Really good set of sports action images, Nathan. In the first two, I find the RBS advertising board strongly drags my eye from the main subject though. I would possibly consider toning it down or even cloning it out, rather tricky to deal with though, which is I am sure why you left it in.
