    Hi [MENTION=7]Cheung[/MENTION] Awesome Photography Buddy \m/
    You Make Those Pics Come Live (y)
    I Like Your Clicks & If its Not Too Much to Ask Can You Please Send me the Uncompressed Images Of Kidambi Srikanth from THAIHOT China SSP & Hong Kong SS?? o_O
    Actually I'm Dedicating a Facebook page on Srikanth and I'm Already a Administrator of one of the Badminton Page in FB.
    So Need Your Kind Efforts to Make Them More Soulful..and Interesting.
    Its Good For the Promotion of The Sport as Well. India isn't as much into Badminton as the Likes of China Indonesia or Malaysia..But Has A Huge Potential..As It is A Country Of Billion+ People.
    Optimistically Looking for Your Co-Operation in the Name of Love and Passion we Share for this Game..
    And If You Trust Me, I Assure you of Credits/Courtsey While Using Your Possessions!!
    Impatiently Waiting For your Replyyy..

    Hi,

    Thanks for the appreciation but there are others much better than me. I know Srikanth has photos on his USB. You may ask him for those ;)

    I didn't go to China Open.

    we are honored to have all the good photographers who obviously enjoy their work and like to share their work with us.

    even so, I have done it before and know what it is required. it is a lot of time commitment, and just a lot of work to be sitting there in the stadium, be it on the stands or on the floor, watching the game through the viewfinder. we are very grateful for that.

    Clinical Liu Xin provides a direct contrast to the exuberant Tai TY.

    I disagree, Cheung. you know you have advanced to the next level when you not only take action shots but also able to capture the split moment human emotions. and you have done that very well!

    Don't forget they're blasting away at 7-10 fps, and there's probably a 95% discard rate... :p

    But nevertheless, there are some incredible keepers, especially those that completely freezes the action in time, showing the face contorted with emotion and effort, and the muscles and limbs in maximal contraction...
