Dear All,

This picture was taken during my visit to Mecklenburg Lake District located in the N-E part of Germany.

There are several hundreds of lakes, most of them are joined together and if you have lot of time you can enjoy the entire charm of this vast Nature reserve. The forest cover is amazing and you won't see people around there and it gives you a wonderful feeling to play football and it could be a great fun, believe me!

My son (in this picture 2 years and 3 months old) is a great fan of football and plays whenever wherever he gets a chance to do so :)

To freeze the moment was a challenge for me.

Kind regards,

Now this is a great candid image of action and of course love for your son. The Dof used created an almost 3D effect on the image. I like it and think it will be a great addition to the family album.


Ciao Paras, great timing for a fantastic action shoot with cute child, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Paras.

Graet action capture, looks like hes got a wicked right foot.....shows good concentration too. I think the pale tones behind help in contrasting his tones, positioning within the frame pleasing. tfs

Hi Paras,
A nice action shot! Your son must be training football, he's got the touch of one! Perfect timing! A very interesting expression in his face. Good light management and quite a neat presentation.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Excellent balancing! And what timing on your behalf!
The sharp focusing is totally on your son Paras, where it should be, with a nice blur of the surroundings, which does not distract our eyes, but puts the picture in context.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hello Paras,

You're capturing well this scene by a good timing, good focus and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the lovely moment that your cute son is kicking a soccer ball and enjoying on ground. He keeps a good balance and pose by concentration.

Kind regards,

Hello Paras,
Love to see this image.
Convey my love and blessings to Yash.
Presently I am deeply involved with Nature photography.
