Goal mouth celebration

By C_Daniels
When you win...

Dedicated to Rotherham United who have miraculously managed to wipe clean their ten point deduction - turn the tide and pull themselves out of the relegation zone!

So far so good - keep believing :O)

Mode - shutter priority.
Shutter speed - 1/4 of a second.
Aperture - f14.
Exposure compensation -(-2).
Focus - manual.
The camera was fixed on a tripod.

Another one from the bonfire night display on the Manor Field in Maltby - 5/11/2006.
The main use of the field is for Sunday league football matches which can be heared from streets away...

More detail in the larger version - thanks for the support.
