The light was good when I set off for the game so I left the Nikkor 80-200 f/2.8 at home in favour of the extra reach afforded by the Sigma 170-500.

Bad decision. The light deteriorated very quickly and I soon had to push the ISO all the way to 1600 in order to get decent shutter speeds.

But I came away with this one which merits framing. Er...NOT!

Excellent, a classic. The expressions and the mouthpieces tell it all.
Thanks, Gordon.

The guy with his hands on his head is one tough cookie.

Earlier this year a one-and-a-half ton block of steel fell on his leg at work and did unspeakable things to his shin-bone.

Six weeks later he was playing again!

You know what they say about those forwards though Clive, "No brain; no pain!" :D

That is a great shot though, seriously. A bit of Neat Image or the like on the background would be my only suggestion. Other than that, frame it.

Thanks, Neil.

I have Neat Image, but I'm learning this new PS plug-in from Kodak - Airbrush Professional - which is mainly used for flattering ladies' portraits - but I'm investigating its efficiency as a noise reduction tool.
