    Me and "my" four staff did our first big day-long carnival yesterday. About 150 games spread across 7 fields.

    Action from the final won by probably the best U/9 team I have seen.

    Darren, these are very nice! I like the 4 and 5 the best!
     
  6. Darren these are great, I have a soccer tourny up my way this weekend that I'll be covering. 16 fields, luckily there will be a few photographers, so we'll be good. But even then a lot of soccer to cover in 2 days.
     
  7. WOW excellent series for sure, some of the best soccer I have seen in a while, way to go

  10. Wow the light down there is really nice, your early spring I assume, like No. 5 the best great facial expression

    late Winter yes, and the light on these fields later in the day is golden and nice for about an hour

    Thanks all

    My team took over 5000 photos during the day, so, lots of work still to do !!
     
  12. Very Nice shots Darren!, I've just aquired a 300 AF-S 2.8 as well :) , this weekend was my first outing with it & it took some getting used to after a zoom. Kind regards Graham.
