Im Gona Get Ya

By uggyy    
Almost ready to put a cheerleader one up but sorry you got to make do till Im sure which cheerie Im going to splash up here Smile

Nearing the end of this set of pictures, was hoping to get some fresh ones today but the game was cancled afet going 50 miles to see it, the pitch was waterlogged, which was total rubbish, it was fine and I have the photos to prove it...

Hope your weekends went well, Tommy

The sport doesn't interest me Tommy, but this is an excellent action shot. Have the players this?

Good shot, I used to play American Football when I was younger and more foolish, and I can confirm that Roughriders is an apt name for any team from Glasgow!

Absolutely love this series of shots Tommy, they are superb! The black and white effect is really effective.

Hey Tommy, what's going on here?
Have you decided to stop being a bard of your nature and to become a bard of human nature?
All the shots are the top of sport journalism, and I'm sure there will be a couple of lovers of this sport at the site.

I have been taking photos of the Glasgow Tigers Team for about 4 years now, though now with better kit Im getting more results with them. This is the other side to my photographic intertests. Sports photography is one of them things that is made to look easy with the pros and realy does take 90% skill and 10% luck. So I end up with 10% decent photos Smile

Thanks peeps for your comments, Tommy

Another fine shot Tommy. Plenty of action and excellent toning and presentation. This has been a good series.

Another cracking shot Tommy. Pitch for our rugby team was great yesterday, just muddy enough for a bit of cushioning. Our lads also won their 8th match in a row. Unbeaten this season.

tommy, think you might be more in the 90% mate, great shot, the toning reminds me of one of those 50's game shots, but higher quality. works well i think, like it lots

Hi Tommy
Thank you for your explanation.
I once took some photos of tennis players.
It wasn't that dramatic, but of course, with team sports it's different.
In fact i am fond of all your picturesSmile
The problem is this clickable system that presses us, at least me, for sure.

Thanks Peeps, appreciate your feedback Smile

Im well over the moon and to be honest didnt think even one of my recent photos would break the 10 clicks, I didnt put them up for clicks..

Will be moving on soon to some new types of photos or what ever takes my mood Smile
