Voici une action de rugby prise lors d'un match au Havre.
J'ai retouché le fond pour éliminer un arrière plan pas du tout photogénique.

Here an action of Rugby taken at the time of a match in Le Havre. I improved the bottom to eliminate a background not at all photogenic.

Hi Christian,
A nice action shot, you have caught the players expression perfectly. I like how you treated the background to remove distractions.
I have to add....Go the All Blacks in the World Cup.

Bonjour Christian,
Superbe photo, l'action est bien saisie et le traitement d'arrière plan est génial aussi bien avec les couleurs qu'avec le mouvement diagonal choisi.
Bien joué !


this is a great change of background that isolates the main image a superb action capture and artistic view point even if the skin tones are a little warm. full marks

Hi, a superb action shot, the detail is excellent - I love the way he is reaching for the ball. The PP work is very effective. Regards, Jean

Hi Christian,

Great action captured on the rugby player. Superb shot.




This looks fantastic, the pp work to the B/G looks excellent, and the players and the ball are positioned perfectly.

This is a one great shot.
Good catch, timing, interesting distorted and unsharp background, making the photo very dynamic.

Good colours.

Well done.

Hi Christian,

Nice picture filled with action. I like the changes in the back ground.

So now i find out from where the mask learned to put the pants on heads. ;)

I was just thinking how the rugby player feels when his team mates pick him up in the air like this. His expressions here look stunned but still focused on the ball.

Well done and TFS.

With best regards,
Muhammad Usman Ali
