great action shot with context for the playing fields - sounds like one great tournament just completed last week. You've done well with a crisp image here, with great selective depth of field.

is interesting to see how the tournaments we play footbaal on simple clay courts and this shows the true passion for sport with no financial interests. Well done

@Rosso: You've said it very well, Rosso. The only reason these children were play is because they they wanted to play. And the schools just wanted to promote football among children which, to my mind, is the best game.

MrsAmber from West Wickham, United Kingdom

Lovely shot, like th scuff of dust puffed up. A great shot from a different continent and a different world of football to here in England..echo Rosso's comments. Come on the blues!

It's not easy to take this sort of pic ! You doing very well ! I like to see the energy of this boy !!! He believes in what he's doing !!!

@Anne: I think the art of taking these shots is to just keep clicking and you will hit few good shots. Thanks to this digital invention. It would have been very expensive deal had we still been on the film cameras.

Linda from Riga/Sigulda, Latvia
