British Irish Lions vs Sharks – 10 June 2009

by Gerhard

The Shark Tank  saw on Wednesday night 10 June what we can expect from the Lions Further on.  As i said in the previous post the Lions are going to develop in a very good side in the next two weeks. The only problem i can see is that they not going to play their full Test side before the first test on 20 June in Durban.  I think if the Boks wants to hit them they must do it in this test. 

Here a image of Lee Byrne on the run. As you can see it was a night game. Setting on my D3 was as follow;

Shutter;  1/800 sec.

Aperture: F4

ISO: 5000

White Balance: Auto

Picture Control: Vivid -1(The -1 is for the British guys who really got red skin tones if using on full vivid)

Further it is always a big decision when to switch from your long lens(400mm) to the shorter zoom(70-200mm). With this image i pushed it to the limit to get those facial expressions. If you want to get nice try shots this was to late because if i only changed at this moment i would have missed it anyway. One must at least switch on the 25 m line resulting in losing these nice closeup shots near the try line. Anyway i think it varies from one photographer to another and also for whom you are shooting for. Normally the papers like the try photos where in magazines i would get more coverage out of this image of Lee Byrne.
