    Went to the Lin Ning Singapore Open 2011 final. China took four titles out of the five, namely the WS, WD, MS(walked over by Chen Jin as Lin Dan declared unwell for match) and MD.

    Here are some photos to share, hope you guys enjoy. Discussion and comments are welcome.

    #1. I was late, so the Taiwan and Indonesia team had completed their game. Indo took Taiwan by 21-17 and 27-25.

    #23. Lin Dan :- ehh, pai seh, today not felling well, got M/C, cannot play. Chen Jin over huh. Sorry sorry!!
    The organizer arranged for Lin Dan to announce personally to the spectators and suppoters that he would not be playing in today's MS match because he was not feeling well, while his compatriot Chen Jin looked on. Chen Jin walked over the MS single match to become the MS champion. The announcement upset a lot of supports and spectators alike. From there on, the China team had been booed by the audience in every match.

    #31. but at times it does happen this way......
    [​IMG]


    #32. since the Korean pair is so strong in defence, Tian Qing of China pair is adding all her body weight to make the smash more deadly....
    5848893786_57cbe4d746_z.jpg

    #33. A easy clear from Zhao Yunlei.
    5848337681_e921c5b472_z.jpg

    #34. A shot not only has to be powerfull, the pose must be as intimidating too.
    5848895508_4b68b1e6e9_z.jpg

    #35. there is no lack in action and power packed play between the China and Korean team.

    5848340297_e95e83dda7_z.jpg

    #38. But if a return cannot be threatening, at least it has to be looking beautiful.
    5848341079_41869d3063_z.jpg

    #39. Not every shots can be a attacking shot, at times one has to play defence as well. The China pair is doing just that.....
    5848899978_97cbc27342_z.jpg

    #40. here comes the attacking play again....

    #42. The China pair took the Korean with a conclusive 21-13, 21-16 after intense action packed and high speed play. Jung Kim, come on, runner up is equally impressive, you have done well too!

    Thanks for your compliment.

    I use Nikon D7000, Nikon 80-200mm , F2.8. D7000. Most of the shots are at ISO 4000 to 5000. In order to max up the shutterspeed, I down the EV by -ve 0.3. all shots are JPG, not RAW.

    #49. a lot of jump smash in MD, combining speed, power and steep angle to create opportunity for the next shot.
    5852541734_59a80520c1_z.jpg

    #50. every subsecond and the quality of return is extremely critical in MD.

    #51. Alvent Yulianto is likely returning with a aseline shot, a lot of power, no "breadtalke" please.
    5851990637_569145137e.jpg

    #52. Left hander Fu Haifeng of China, his left arm is much much bigger than his right one.
    5851991303_9a907efbab_z.jpg

    #53. A powerful smash by Cai Yun with a complete follow through.
    5851992219_d634363aaf_z.jpg

    #54. Cai Yun - power balance.
    5852545290_5c0f98408e.jpg

    #55. I conclude one thing for sure - it is more difficult to frame the MD in action with the shuttle. Because their "shuttle" is faster than my "shutter".
