Brasil 1 Lillywhites 0 by ash Brasil 1 Lillywhites 0 by ash
There's a story to this one ...

It's Sunday afternoon at Piccadilly Circus, and Brasil have beaten Germany 2-0 only hours before to win the World Cup for the fifth time. It's madness everywhere, with guys in yellow shirts and warpaint kicking footballs around Piccadilly Circus to the beat of bongo drums like it's a schoolyard, running in front of buses to fetch the ball, drop kicking it into the air and watching with baited breath to see where it will land. Wherever it comes down a frenzy breaks out as complete strangers tackle each other for possession like they're playing for the match. Then unexpectedly the ball, at the top of its arc, flies over the main balcony on the third floor of the Lillywhites building, clean into an open window a few meters square, and is gone. The crowd goes wild with applause, hugging and cheering the scorer of the fluke "goal" as he runs through the throng. Brasil 1 - Lillywhites 0.

really a stunning shot - you captured the emotions very well and I like the unusual focus (blurry heads in the foreground) very much!

This shot is flawless, captures the moment perfectly, and the tight crop is very apepaling, would of been a great news article header.
