God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Re: Brilliant Tennis Photography Thread

This could easily become my favourite thread.

Flickr often produces gems.

Examples (all from Madrid 2009):















Irony.














Love the warm colouring and the use of natural light to further add to the effects.

Re: Brilliant Tennis Photography Thread

You're welcome.

Other photos I like, but maybe not "brilliant":


...the rain and that look of agony on Mario's face.


I like how they're both smiling whilst looking in different directions.

Paulo.








Maybe not strictly tennis... but





His senior career in a nutshell.




Can't seem to find this in it's original colours. :/

WTA, brilliant nevertheless. She looks like a sprinter who's just left the blocks.

Re: Brilliant Tennis Photography Thread

I hate to sound pedantic but

brilliant photography isnt pictures of playing hitting balls

thats weak

a "brilliant" photo should tell a story... more than what the photo is saying

for example:

i hate to pimp out my own photo selections but

each of my pictures tells a story... you can read into it. it works on multiple levels, i carefully chose each one, its really wonderfully selected (if i do say so myself)

i didn't just think, hey, nice picture of a backhand

in fact, the one picture of the gasquet backhand tells a unique story in itself... Richard's chest out, his arms fully extended in a text book manner- the puffed up chest- a french rooster in full roar even- hitting the most eloquent of shots, with the poise God only seems to gift to the french

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Re: Brilliant Tennis Photography Thread

I struggle to see how Wikipedia screen shots of players' results counts as brilliant photography. But to each their own.

I liked the Gasquet backhand picture, though.
