Rugby from the North Doc

By pepperst
Last two shots from the shoot I did at Cobra last weekend.

Both pictures were taken in the closing minutes of the game when victory was certain but the reality had yet to fully set in.

I liked the idea of the families coming together for this moment rather then spend them with the males at the bar, it said a lot about what it meant to them.

Please say as you see, I would rather the truth here than we made a fool of in public!

Cheers all

Great pic, proper social documentary stuff.

Of course, somebody will be along shortly to complain about the colour cast rather than noticing that it tells a story. The yellow/green cast adds to the story. The ceiling probably is that colour anyway!

I'm sick of sunsets, readers wives tat, blue tits and all the other stuff we see on here. Time to wake up and realise there's more to the world than camera club chocolate box stuff.

I bed there's a goodseries in the making here.

The colours and detail work so well. Again another great capture of human expression, and a moment in time.

I love it because of he story it tells. And that after all is what photography is about and what it is YOUR hoping to achieve.

I love this and I thinks both images are very emotive.

Have an award on me Peps.
