Snooker Loopy.....

By boov  
Series here trying to capture the atmosphere 'close up' of the old snooker room, some shots proving a little difficult when there is only you.... thanks again for all the interest, wishing everyone a great week ahead......
Well just goes to show, these amateurs can't get the green and brown in the right place ( spot on mark2uk) said it was difficult on your own.......

Agree with the previous comments. Great set of shots.
...... just one little niggle.... In the first shot, the green and the brown are the wrong way around..... sorry

A great set of a subject that I don't recall seeing tackled her on site before, Jim, and whilst V 1 deserves it's slot for composition, I have to say those that show movement are my favourites.
Very well done indeed.

A very inventive set of images. V1 superb composition, V2 also excellent composition and use of DOF, All movement shots good but 4 and 9 stand out to me. I think 9 is my favourite of the lot but 2 and 4 are not far behind.

This is a fantastic set of images, Jim - everyone a winner!
