    These are 2 images both from the same original which one do you think is best. I prefer the cropped version but then again the un cropped one gives a sense of the game.

    Also trying out the new download system

    Woops only one up loaded, will submit this one and then load the second one

    The people watching (especially the spectators) in the first one are too distracting I feel. No.2 gets us into the action only, which is just what Peter Gennard would want. Some would want the fence gone too, especially the blue sign.

    Any comment I make about a picture on here which is being considered for  competition would have to have to rider “as far as I can tell” when it came to quality. I looks sharp and detailed but I have to leave it to you to judge whether it is good enough to yield a satisfactory print.

    The other thing I would ask you to consider is whether the emotional content – humour, effort etc stands up. It is a well caught moment in terms of the action and I like the dynamics of the positions of the bodies (diagonal). Compositionally you could use a bit more on the right and it is there in the original.

    Cropping the fence and adding a bit on the right gives you a much bigger picture, although the bodies are no longer along the diagonal. You would have to try it.

    How about square? Gets the space and the diagonals. But I don’t know whether there’ll be enough pixels. (Probably OK if cropping from a full-frame file.)

    I prefer the cropped versions as well for the reasons John gave. I think they have more impact and less distractions. If there was a big crowd which merged together with plenty of excited faces in a blurry background I would include them, but just one or two pull the eye away from the players more. I do like the sqaure format.

    I prefer the cropped version and agree with Ian about the square format.

    Thank you all for your most useful comments. I really does help for others to look at ones work as we tend to become blind to glaring mistakes within them. On 2 counts I did not see the sign and the distraction of the hedge. More important is the image is not portraying any emotion and would have no contact to the viewer. This one will stay on file or even be filed under file 13 (bin).
