Went with a Camera Club /Flickr Mate to The Old County Ground, BRENTWOOD Essex ( England) and we took CRICKET !! Brentwood V Chelmsford so tow local teams. I have not done 'Cricket' since I retired from Press Photography years ago so had many more Birthdays since then but for an 85 Year Old Snapper hope my reactions were still good ! Nobody got 'Bowled Out with Bails Flying while we were there !
BRENTWOOD were BATTING and CHELMSFORD were BOWLING

the last two are brilliant, i would have to machine gun like mad to get anywhere near the quality of them and probably failed anyway, well done Peter

Very nice. The first is the clear winner for me.

For me, three is the best. I like the composition with all the main players featured, has an intensity and a bit of blur (ball) conveying action.
4 then 1 then 2.

Not struck on 2 as I would have put the batsman as the main subject but he is OOF and the gent on the bench is too much of a distraction.

Good to see you again Peter. The set illustrates the action and the first is my favourite.

Getting older and grumpier. Taking longer to decide which lens to use today.
