    Great pictures! I love 2 & 3. But especially 3, I thought the Background was painting! Hahaha! But it looks like it needs cropping a little on the net portion if its alright with you?
    Still, Awesome pictures. Love it!

    That is glorious. The composition. The lighting. The feeling of an early morning autumnal chill in the air. The anticipation of the match. The getting together of the team.

    Maybe it's because I played a team sport and lived this scene every Saturday during the season for the best part of 20 years.

    I love it.

    Add to everything that Donald mentioned about the first one that the two girls are adjusting their hair. This is truly a magnificent image.

    No, it works for me too, and I certainly haven't partaken of any sport (team or solo) for decades

    I love it too.

    Thank you everyone for your kind remarks - I love pic 1 also, it was the first time they played together and there were a few youngsters who were a little overwhelmed with being chosen for the 1sts, you almost feel their trepidation. It is Lotties last year and she was thrilled to be made Captain along with being Head Girl and she has been given the honour of being made Wales Lacrosse U18 Captain. A very busy year ahead and a very proud Mum x

    I like all of them and share the sentiment and experience of being out on a cold autumn / winters morning many a time to compete in a team sport! I think you've captured that essence wonderfully.

    #1 is an absolute winner in my book and a great candidate for B&W. Great job on the conversion!
