    I've started work on the annual photobook as a distraction (sanity preserver) from jobhunting, and have been reminded of how much fun it can be going through the photos - I rarely see them when they are fresh as I edit automatically in Elephants and upload via Dropbox, so it's a treat, especially as the annual dinner is a non-starter this year so I have no deadline to adhere to.

    Anyway, ramble over, an easy decision for this one - straight in the "It's a funny old game" section! upload_2020-10-11_18-40-55.jpeg

    Haha! It's almost like a time-lapse series. Must be a heavy old screen!
    Great one to include in the book. :)

    Who is the chap at the end miming a push?!

    Our star batsman! I think he realised it was moving well enough without him, but I didn't spot the little pushing motion until today.

    It is a bloomin' heavy screen - the groundsman repurposed the old steel-framed covers when they were replaced, two have sightscreens inserted, and one is the roof over the "grandstand" (if I come across a picture later I'll add it, for a larf).

    This is the "grandstand" built from another of the old covers:

    Good stuff. I don’t have appraisal comments. They stand as documentary as they are.

    I take it that the first one is the one to be appraised.It is more than documentary; it is humour.
    You have released the shutter just as the person far left has almost landed on his face. The person 'virtually' pushing is icing on the cake.
    It is a well seen hilarious moment. I like the composition with the line of heads descending towards the base of the heavy screen that seems to have started moving quite suddenly.
    I think that you have dealt with the high dynamic range of the scene very well.
    Its a brilliant photo, and I'm not even a fan of cricket.
