Greetings from the Critique Club ...

I'm gonna be honest with you, there's nothing to critique. This is superb shot. You froze the action. The expressions are perfect. The background is thrown out of focus. The intensity is clearly shown. It meets the challenge.

The glare off the goal post is a slight distraction, but it's not like you can direct them to "scuffle" about 5 feet to the left :)

In my opinion, you got an excellent score, but it should have been higher. Fickly voters, I guess.

Awesome Job.

I'm no fan of this composition. Fror all the evident exertion, it holds little drama for me, the arms and shirts become confused to the left of frame, the tonality and processing don't differentiate the players from their background well enough.

Good tough, sports image. Nice duotone and it just wants to make me say..."ggrrrrrr and flex my muscles when I see it. :-)

great action. I would have not cropped so close (assuming you did) and included their full bodies.
