    I was asked to photograph a local football league by a friend of a friend. I didn't know at the time that it was going to be flag football lol.

    I don't mean fend anyone here is there are any hardcore flag football players/fans, but there seems to be almost NO climax in flag football. There's action but there's never really a peaking point, because, well, ripping velcro flags isn't really as exciting as slamming someone to the ground [I don't really like any type of American football (aka hand-egg)]

    Great timing in all of them, awesome job!

    My favorites are the third (even if you cut the feet of two players) and the second, for the expressions: one very determined and one smiling. Awesome shot. The last one might be a tiny little underexposed.

    Well done!

    Thanks for the like!

    Looking at your photos again, I noticed that in 3 and 4, where the feet are cut, there is a lot of air above the players' heads. Maybe you had not had time to change the focus point before shooting? :) It happens to me all the time too!

    Ciao!
