This is great - made me laugh this morning - always a good way to start the day. Very well captured and congrats on getting it published. x

I think OUCH covers it. Great timing by you.

31 Aug 2007 8:53AM
Nice one. I'm not surprised the local paper used it. Makes a great alternative to usual sports photography by adding a 'more human' element.

I'm confused, is it the incoming football that is causing them to grimace or the fact that they are gripping too tight Smile

Has to be worth a vote just for those expressions!

Just think now you could have this printed on canvas and presented to the club so that the four lads will forever be reminded of the moment Smile

Should make you even more popular with them!

Working for my local football club I can appreciate this. People love facial expression in Sport Action shots don't they? Smile

Well captured! Worths it's EC!
Had to laugh at this one. Mr Brewer knows what's coming big time. Absolutely love this one.
