The beautiful game 6/11

It wasn't intentional but the distortion has given the figures a somewhat Lowry like appearence to my mind.

It is kind of an interesting distortion- that sky is just beautiful!!
Bill Phillips: I think most people will ignore the football and just look at the sky Elizabeth

Don't try and give quality to your photographic failings Mr Phillips. Lowry hasn't even turned in his grave.
Bill Phillips: It was merely an observation Mr Trim

I'll take your word for it, Bill. In the meantime, Astrid and I watched the England-France rugby game yesterday and thought of you, rooting for you all the way. smile
Bill Phillips: It was a very good win for England

I like the photo not sure about the worlds football game,
Bill Phillips: Football is generally quite dull these days. I think Sunday football like this is probably more fun to watch. I prefer cricket

It looks a kind of funny. Great to see what a lens 'sees'.
Wonderful sky. Great series so far. Mr. Evans can be proud to be selling his skies.
Bill Phillips: I got a good discount for a bulk purchase

You appear to have been the only member of the audience: or whatever the term is...
Bill Phillips: The word is crowd although neither word applies here
I like the composition, with the huge sky, and all the action along the bottom. (:o)
Bill Phillips: The sky was more interesting
Are you hoping to catch a disallowed goal with the ball clearly over the line?
Bill Phillips: No
Your mind is cloudy like the sky.
Bill Phillips: Mind?? What mind???

Possibly - or maybe alien Vogons have turned on a large vacuum cleaner and the players and equipment are being dragged skywards!
Bill Phillips: That's a possibility Mike
You've got some very interesting effects here Bill. You say it was unintentional, but can you remember what you did?
Bill Phillips: Wide angle tilted upwards Sheila

They certainly do look Lowry-like. I have a Lowry calendar on the wall and your pic wouldn't look out of place, Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thank you Elisabeth. I am pleased I am not the only person who thought so

Great sky here Bill, the football match seems almost incidental.
Bill Phillips: What football? grin
Pole vaulting????
Bill Phillips: The one goalkeeper was a Pole

Who? grin
Bill Phillips: Lowry Turner, a TV presenter with short legs
It seems that the players on the left are fighting against the strong wind!
Fine capture Bill.
Bill Phillips: I think they just had hangovers
Very good wide angle effect Bill.
Bill Phillips: The old Sigma lens is great fun Brian
