Take Him Down

Very nice action shot, Erica! I'm amazed that there's no detectable noise after shooting this at ISO 1600. Very good composition and DOF. #527208

Good stop action but it would be nice to see either the face of the ball carrier or the defender. #3351611

Erica Murphy 9/23/2006 7:20:15 PM

Thanks Dennis and I totally agree. That's a big problem with football. Soccer and rugby images are so much more dramatic because you can see so much more of them.

What a shot!!! I love the rear players arms trying to stop him. You can feel the will of the player with the ball. Great color Erica!! #3363744
