  1. Spent a little time this hot, sunny afternoon watching the local polo match at a nearby park. Here's a few pics of some of the action.

  2. These are really good Jack. What were you using? The first one is an absolute cracker as far as showing the effort required from the ponies themselves is concerned.
     
  3. Thank you. Used my new D500 with 70-200 lens and 1.4TC.

    Nice shots, if you don't mind my saying, I feel some are cropped a little tight.
    The bend on the stick (mallet?) is amazing!
     
  5. Thanks. It amazes me the way some of these players handle a mallet and can hit the ball from either side, forward or backward, while on a fast moving horse. I tend to crop tighter than normal at times to try and show the facial expressions on participants, people or animals.
     
  6. Wow, stunning action photo's..
     
  7. Nicely captured. Photos certainly show the intensity of the match.
     
  8. Thank you.

    Thanks. Often you don't notice the intensity because the field is so large but the photos can capture it when the play is nearer you.
