nice shots, great closeups on the kids faces and #6 looks like it might have been painful for the little guy on the ground

Fantastic shots!
I had the chance to use a 300/2.8 for about 30 min (friend in the camera club had one...and needed to use my 70-200/2.8). What an amazing lens...I remember having to back up so far to get the entire model in the frame and tack sharp. So I can only imagine (and see by your photos) how much fun it would be to use on sports.

But really....stop posting pictures like this ! Your gonna cost me 5k if you keep it up =)

Thanks all for the very positive comments. Very encouraging.

And Mike, you're right, it's not just about the gear, but, it sure helps take another jump.

Excellent shots! I agree with you about the lens, just a superb lens. However, I have to echo Mike's comments....the photographer is even more important than the lens.
You really nailed these shots!
