Herman, I know you love rugby (you are a South African; I am American, I love baseball). In V1 it looks like they are all tickling each other. V2 needs no amplification. V3, the scrum looks intense.

Being an ex rugby player(for the Army) I really like these, lots of grunting and shouting.

This picture stands out in the gallery, Herman.
I'll keep a watch on your work in future.

I wonder which positions the girls play?

Colleen will enjoy version 1.

The scrumming for me (Wink of course). Excellent action pics. As the old lady said on a TV show I once saw, "what on earth are they talking about?"
What is that saying "Rugby a game for gentelmen! LOL.

I have to agree but somehow No. 2 appeals to me most and I can't quite figure out why Wink

Never mind eye candy in V2, there's plenty eye candy in versions 1&3 for me! Love the near abstraction in V1 (but with just enough identifiable muscle to keep me happy).

V1 excellent action shot of this mans game Herman, sorry ladies! (Saw one of your games and watches one stretchered off with a broken finger nail) Nice to see some more ladybirds in V2, I knew we were missing something before the game in Wales.


22 Sep 2013 10:03AM
Def v1 for me!! Great action shot.

As much as I like V1's entanglements ...I have to go for V3 for the great view at those boys behinds! Grin Grin
A great trio and I like V1 very much with a good mixture of colour. V2 well needless to say.Sad.
Well done Herman.
