The first one is excellent. The other ones are fine, but could use more subject isolation in my view. Based on your sig, it doesn't seem you have something in the f/2.8 speed or faster to help achieve this.

Thanks for the comments. Ya I wish I had a faster zoom lens to get that separation. I was at 270mm with my 3.5-6.3 at 3200 ISO. My school's arena has terrible lighting.

Aaron -

Congrats on all of these. Any chance to photograph such an historically-significant individual is a treat!

You did great, and I agree with Alex that if you could bring up some of the shadows on Mr.Powell's face in the first, it would be even better.
