Very nice. I like the contrast between the fence and the blue sky; nice symmetry.

Hmm..I tried posting a second ago, but got an internal server error message....

I like the obvious contrast between the "real" and "unreal" in this one, though his face just scares me. For some reason, I think he looks as if he is in deep thought. ;)

This shot did not particularily excite me, especially after the last couple of days, the kites left us wanting more of that shocking Chromasia style, but it still very good. Still, I cannot omit the thought of having had the "referee" and the net out of focus, and focus on the distance. Maybe it would have added a bit of mystery to the referee's image.

Big fan of you.

This shot just creeps me out!

Great shot. That photo totally fooled my eye when first seeing it. I had a hard time distinguishing if it was all "real". The guy looks like he's be dropped into the photo thanks to the fence behind him. Cool cool photo, yet again... (now I just had to add yer site to my favs in photologs!

This one's hilarious! : )

You can tell that guy means business. I pity the fool who tries to score on his goal!

Always an admirer of your pictures, but this one fails to deliver the punch I am used to from your pictures. The shadows on the "guy" is a bit distracting.

This last series of photographs have been amazing.

I see Kevin Keegan has been using hair dye again.

comment by Fotosia at 01:42 PM (GMT) on 12 August, 2005

I can't decide what's more creepy. This one or the previous one with the legs... They are both annoying in the way that they make you stop and stare...

Read it as a compliment :-)

Interesting shot, I like the pattern of the netting.

comment by s at 02:21 PM (GMT) on 12 August, 2005

You look rough!

Thanks everyone. And this one reminded me of George Best rather than Beckham ;-)

comment by Shutterspeed at 07:02 AM (GMT) on 14 August, 2005

This is a great picture. I like how he's not real, it's so quirky. It makes me think of tennis for some reason. The sky in the background is really pretty. I love the way you photgraph skies!

comment by GeeTee at 04:06 PM (GMT) on 18 August, 2005

George Best in an England kit??!! Definitely Keegan.
