It's nice to see a youth soccer game where there aren't 18 kids within two fee of the ball : )

Nice action shot.

Great shot! Awesome capture of the action. Terrific expressions on their faces. Great color management. Just plain technically really well done, and a very interesting photo to boot. Great job!

Very clear shot and overall nice tones & levels.
Timing of the shot is great as is the expression caught on the boy to the right.
I think perhaps a little tighter crop would have helped the overall rpesentation, removing about 100 pixels from the right and 40 off the top. That would eliminate the unbalance caused by the white rectangle in the top right corner. (has a way of drawing the eye's attention to it)

Like this - the interesting position and facial expressions makes this more interesting than most sports / action photos.

What a great action shot! Love the look of concentration on the boys face as he focuses on the soccer ball. It is great how you caught the action of him running and his other leg is poised for the kick. The colors are bold and vibrant. They provide an extra 'kick' that makes the photo 'pop' off the page. The only critique is that there is the mild distraction of the standing people off in the top left corner. But I don't really see how you could have avoided this because you get what you get in action shots and the angle from which you snapped this photo is esentiall to showing the action taking place.

great capture!! I just gotta ask though...did he kick the ground or did he actually kick the ball?

Great shot for colors, sharpness, motion freeze. Background (guys, something back rigth) detract. 6
