great capture! awesome focus, dof. with stuff like this, you deserve to be on the sideline. imo, the only thing that needs work is the title

Sports action cropped tight works for me. Tack sharp. good crop. Very nice capture.

Good capture - plenty of action. Nice DOF too. A confusion of arms and legs in the photo. Something slightly unnerving about the player to the front almost appearing to mingle with the player (in blue) behind - so that he has one hand holding the ball and two more arms aswell!

This photo has everything it needs for a good team action shot. A ball, eyes, player names...definately fits the challenge guidelines. I liked the blurred spectator's. Possibly a little more sharpening of the image could have been applied as the last step.

nice image....real pity it's basic editing....or else you could have do some motion blur to capture the adrenaline rush! [10]

Excellent job! One of the few in the challenge that really does a great job of capturing a decisive moment in a game. Nice job with the cropping and exposure! PS, hope you were rooting for Christopher Newport this time around!
