    These are from one of last Saturday's seven U10 games. One of the games involved the team that I sponsor. :biggrin: I had just moved from the corner to the sideline, and was standing right behind the goalie's father. I met him a couple weeks back at his daughter's U8 game. He was shooting with his D40 and 55-200. :biggrin: After the play was over, he was looking at the back of his camera, and grumbling. He turned around and asked "Did you get that?"

    I replied "Sure did." :wink:






  2. Good save or bad kick? I think a little of both. ;)  Nice series. Love the look of anticipation/fear on his face as the kick is coming to him.

    Cool burst, the IQ is very nice and the action speaks for itself. I sure hope the kid gets to see the burst and his parents buy him something for his wall.

    Great captures Jim .... The anxiety in #1 and the sense of relief in #4 is so nicely captured. As Frank said if this kid could see these pictures he would be very happy with what he did and how he did it.
