Perfect timing by you both Herman. A great action shot, he looks like he's rolled his wrist nicely to keep the ball down, good technique.

Someone earlier asked for an explanation of Cricket:

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side thats been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!

wonderful timing..he must be good if he's in the team at that age....he also look quite powerful for a 15yr old...I learnt (a little too late for me) that you need to have very strong upper arms/chest muscles to play professional cricket/hockey/football...tell him to take up weight training (if he doesn't already) will stand him in good stead.

He has fine action and looks like he can go far Herman, excellent capture. I bet in thirty years time he would rather see this than the usual naked baby on a rug.


well done to your son and a great shot.

The background is too sharp for my liking, including the bucket of cleaning materials. Caught the moment well but not isolating the subject from the background has really detracted from the overall image quality.

Nice shot Herman, and son!

A pet hate of mine when taking cricket shots is the stumps not being pitched straight.
