Pics: Brilliant photos of Canning and Shefflin after their respective miracle points today

The lens of INPHO's James Crombie captured both players celebrating their immense scores, while the reactions of fans, management and even opposition players is bloody fantastic too.

By now you will have surely seen or heard about the sensational end to the Leinster Hurling semi-final between Galway and Kilkenny. Left for dead by a Kilkenny spurt,  a Joe canning penalty completed a late comeback before Henry Shefflin, just back from injury, slotted over a miracle point that looked all ends up the winner for the Cats.

However, Galway manufactured one last chance and Joe Canning sent the game to a replay with an equally stunning score.

INPHO had James Crombie on duty for the game and the snapper did a top job, capturing both players reactions after their respective scores.

In the Shefflin shot you can see the despair on the Galway player, and on manager Anthony Cunningham, while in the Canning riposte the reaction of the crowd is superb, especially the lone Galway kid on the left of the shot.
