Our HS has a girls rugby team that got varsity status this season for the first time...the coach asked me to come out and take some pix. My local weekly was also very interested in the match.

Mid-day so harsh, sunny light but oh well...we lost 34-0, but had a lot of fun.

Look good, nice to know you have the best game over there.

The girls look quite pink? Tint adjustment required? See 5 and 6. I often have to adjust tint away from magenta for rugby, not sure why.

They don't turn bright red until July. Pink is from being wrapped up all winter... :)

Fun shots, Chris! We tried to get a rugby team going, but with 90+% participation in team sports, and some sports going year round, we couldn't get a team together. Wish we did have with possible shots like yours!

Those are great.. love some of the facial expressions !

Looks good Chris, I agree on the WB though. A little pink on the faces, what did you use for your WB setting?? EXIF states Fine Weather, not sure what that is!!!

1, 3, 4, and 7 are the standouts for me because of the facial expressions and framing, but they're all spectacular. Had it not been for the sharp eye of others, here, I would've missed the "pink" tone of the shots mentioned, so I learned a l'il summin-summin, too.
