    The game I mean not the pictures.

    The game was this Sunday #3 against #5 in the Premier Danish Proffesional Soccer League. The guys in red won 2-1.

    Being a former competitive soccer player myself it was hard to concentrate on the shooting and not the game. I would have loved to get some of the goals but I got carried away :biggrin: . Anyway here are some of my first attempt shooting a pro game.

    original.

    Great shots!!

    Really nice!!
    Were you on the field? Which camera and lens?
    I know what you mean about concentration. I am a huge college football fan here in the states. I love to take my gear to the games, but I feel like I am missing the game when I am constantly looking through my camera.

    Thanks Pat.

    I was not on the field unfortunately. I was as close to the field as you can get. I had a little competition from a Pro Canon shooters. I used the 300 mm f.4 and the D80. It was quite fun and I think I'll try again as long as my favorite team FC Copenhagen is not involved. In that case I couldn't concentrate on shooting. :smile:

    Thanks. Yes he was quite mad and obviously giving some direction to one of his attackers.
     
  6. Nice action captures Torben. Keep em coming.
     
  7. Excellent nice colors and sharpness, I too get caught up in the competition and soemtimes forget to shoot
     
  8. Excellent, Torben. Some really nice action, quite sharp, and great exposures. I sometimes had a hard time concentrating on photography when my sons, played, so I sympathize when you say that the fan in you overshadows the photographer occasionally. :smile:

    Thanks Mike. As I have soccer running in my veins it's like performing two hobbies at the same time.

    Thank you Dave. That's why I missed the goals. I was to busy clapping and cheering. :biggrin:

    Thanks Gale. It's nice to be able to catch some action even when it's almost summer and the sled is put away. :smile:
