Personally, I prefer the first image. You still get the camaraderie of the players, but the intensity of the guys stare seems bigger or more dire in the first.

Really neat processing Bob. I love the looks of these. Nice work. I kind of like #2 myself; reminds me of team sports/army = teamwork.

The crop, processing, and the blur really bring the viewer into the image. Sometimes less is more and that seems to be the case in these two images. Real nice work.

Excellent processing Bob, if they are packing down for a scrum I am not sure how friendly that look is
Love the intensity.

#2

Mixing it up further.
I prefer the second.
Love the processing, Bob. The toning is perfect!

#1 for me - makes you feel you're facing off with them (not that I'd want to, actually.) The toning works for me in these images whereas I was less enthusiastic about it in your other post. Great sports images both.

I prefer the second because of the balance.

If I may offer a broad thanks to everyone for their time, insight, and comments - interesting the splits in preferences. Personally, I tend slightly toward #1 but will explore both for printing.

And props to Lazlo - for the inspiration for the processing and things just sort of fell into place for this image. But still a long way to go.

Back-story: the team was gathering their composure after losing a closely contested match...locking up for a scrum was not quite as relaxed. After some dry clothes, I am sure they all revisited the match over some cold beverages at a local pub.

Thanks again,

Bob

#1 captures a mood.
#2 captures a moment.
Both are nice, but I prefer 1.

Interesting distinction Mark, thanks for pointing it out. #1 is the first version, went back and altered the crop a good time later.

Regards,

Bob

Both nicely done. Great captures.

For me, #1 really pops.

I like them both and see them as very different presentations. Each one presents a different story to the viewer.

I like #1 as an environmental portrait of the player, and #2 as more of a presentation of the Team's story.

The image is incredibly good, Bob.
It captures the violent nature of rugby perfectly. Why they don't punch each other out all the time is amazing. Semi-civilized behavior in a Neanderthal- based "sport?" Quite a concept .
I also prefer the crop because it emphasizes the intensity of the one man's stare.

#1 Great image!

Charlie misses the point, sadly, as rugby is a game for ruffians played by gentlemen.
Soccer is a game for gentlemen played by ruffians. American football ? Definitely not Neanderthal as they were intelligent, gentle and civilized . Probably Cro Magnon as in Flintstone.
