PAIN

By Imagephotographics
Afternoon everyone !

Many thanks for your comments and clicks on yesterday's INFERNO, most appreciated !

Thank you Ronnie for your Award !

Something different today - photographed a local rugby match a couple of weeks ago, was just looking through the images and thought I'd share a couple with you. I've added a grainy effect which I think suits the image. And chose this one as it has captured the look of pain !

Different anyway - hope you like it !

Chris

BEST VIEWED LARGE IF YOU HAVE TIME !

"...the grain and the pain." Good comment, love the picture. The grain certainly adds to it - not sure how it's done but it's effective.

Oh that is a great image of my favourite spectator sport. It lets me shriek "Scrag 'im" and other phrases. It helps to let rip occasionally.
