The Ecstasy of Beckham

By Tinman
I took this picture at half time during the England-Argentina match at the world cup 02, Beckham had just scored and this Japenese man was more excited than me! I took it off the T.V. and after reading Petes article I now know why as sometimes I got a good shot and sometimes I didn't!!!

mmmm must try that technique Matt ...was the gentleman happy or in pain over the score? Cheryl ..who knows naught about soccer as well as this technique but know doubt the article will enlighten me ...I read that a while back and thot to give it ago ...sometime! Your image inspires me to do it even moreSmile very impactive shot MATT the colour insert is a nice touch. The image was well seen by the cameraman ! I am sure you would agree you must have been rather quick yourself to actually capture the still and so well as well ..well done in that regard ..cheryl

I have the reactions of a puma, the eyesight of an eagle and the body of a sumo Smile
This chap has the cross of St George on his chops so I take it he was support England and the expression I take it is Ecstasy although it could be pain but I was in ecstasy at the time only to be knocked down and out by Brazil
thanks once again for your comments

Nice effects Matt. It's nice to see a clever use of layers and nice to see the 2-tone process. This is a clever shot. Must find time for more play. Well done.
