Gaelic Football

By John_Humphreys
This is an under 12s Gaelic Football game. In Gaelic Football, the players can handle the ball as well as kick it. It is quite a physical game but a little less so than rugby.

I recently decided to stop shooting jpegs and move over to raw. This is the first such image I have uploaded here.

1/3000 sec, f/3.2, ISO 400

You certainly have an eye for it, John. Did you play it yourself?

Great capture, was in Dublin last year and loved this game and the other dangerous one.

Great timing, and two good expressions. I wouldn't normally mess about with a sports shot but in this instance I think I'd clone out the dark blurs at the top because I find them a bit of a distraction.

Moira - thanks for the comment about the blurs. I was so engaged in tweaking the sliders with my raw image that I hadn't noticed these blurs.

Johnny - yes I played this at school.
