    I don't quite understand the "relationship with photography" bit, but it is a good photography subject (if you have the patience).

    Thank you for that Tony, I'd never seen that wonderful Beldam before... though Tanya Aldred's is magical!

    The thing I love about cricket is that the action is quite fixed, so I stand a decent chance of getting good photos simply by throwing manure at the wall. And it gets out of umpiring and scoring...

    Lens edge distortion is shocking, can't imagine it'll be any use for professionals ... ;)

    I dread to think what Flickr's image resizing will have done to the quality of these, but these have turned up during the production of the annual photobook, and they amused me for various reasons.

    No 1 - standard shot, quite backlit as I couldn't be arsed to walk round the other side of the ground to get the sun right.

    No 2 - A bit less standard. The (cricket) shot is quite standard, no ball in shot which usually lessens the impact, but I think the pic is made by the wickie's expression. Fred is someone I enjoy photographing, as he doesn't hide anything.I think you could probably caption this "Oh ****!", and everyone would see why.

    Finally, No 3 - this (Fred again) just made oi larf. I've no idea what they were discussing, but it looks for all the world as though they are about to square up. Possibly the sort of thing that @RovingMike appreciates?
