    Its all about shots 3 and 5 .... Good stuff chris .... my only suggestion would be to get in there and crop them a bit more.... If you like i would be happy to show you what i mean. Looking forward to seeing more when you have time

    LOL...Yes, he's only six and it was his second game, but you'd never know it by the enthusiasm.

    Please do. I am always looking to learn from experienced sports shooters. :smile: The focus is a little off in the last picture as I didn't quite follow them down to the field.

    Here ya go ..... This is an article i wrote a while back about cropping... it may help ...

    http://topher04r1.blogspot.com/2008/04/to-crop-or-not-to-crop.html

    And here are a few examples to show what i mean by crop tighter... Your photos really are good and just a bit of cropping will help to really push them over the edge :cool:

    I had to crop them and put them back up. Forgot to fix the links. Definitely can see missed focus with the crops. :eek:
