The ball is about to hit my son in the head. He would prefer me to say that he was about to head the ball! As a mother I hate seeing the kids hit headers. I worry that they are scrambling their brains. Of course in this picture he still had a lot of hair to cushion the blow!

    Nice shot! I like the way he is lean to get the ball.

    Nice action shot – you’ve captured him in sharp clarity. I find myself wishing there was just a bit more room at the top of the pic between the edge of the frame and the ball, but in these action shots that’s a challenging thing to try and compose for. Did you use single shot or burst mode? I keep forgetting about my burst mode option when I’m doing action shots.

      Thanks for your comments. I redid the crop leaving a little more space above the ball. When shooting soccer I always use the burst mode. I am not good enough to capture action without using it. Also when I read about sports (action) photography, everyone or just about everyone recommends shooting in a burst mode. That way most of the time you stand a chance of getting a good shot. Try it.
