    Sweet pics!

    The only thing that would've made them better is if the score had been the other way around. :o

    Some nice shots there. The two pics that define the game would be #9 #18. Photo editors look for images that sum up a game in one or two shots. The only thing I think you need practice on is placing yourself in a spot to get the "definitive" shot.

    those are some of my favorites too :coold:

    thanks :h5:

    :squint:

    Thanks

    Me too, I think I'm making a large print of it for my wall.

    I couldn't agree more, I always seem to get some great pictures, but they would only be good if my team lost the game. Oh well. Thanks, I will definitely work on that next game.

    #1 is pretty nice. As far as football pics go though, the only ones I like are 11,15, and 19. The other ones are either facing the wrong way or look soft. I thought maybe I was just being overly picky with sharpness, but when I see something like 15, I know what the pictures COULD be. #3 Wrong way #4 All I want to look at is player 11 and hes OOF. Action doesnt work well from behind #5 Pretty loose and Ive got to think that if you took a frame just a split second later that it could have been much better #6 Looks strangely soft?...Would love to have a face in that one but sometimes you just take what you can get ;) #7 Just doesnt do much for me :hs: #8 Wrong way #9 I really wish I could see his face. Timing is nice. Lighting is bad. #10 Another one where I think it could have been a lot better just a second later #11 I really like. I would have worked with it some more in post to bring out his face, but thats just me #12 Hate those visors #13 Wrong way #14 Looks soft #15 I like it. Id crop it tighter #16 Wrong way #17 Go tighter #18 Not bad. Id rather see the Duke player tackling the guy or falling flat on his face though.. #19 Pretty alright #20 Wrong angle. Keep it up and dont get hit! WTF It wont show that I hit enter...

    awesome man, thanks for the tips. :coold: but holy crap was that hard to follow :rofl:

    Yup. :mamoru: There are lots of people out there with just a 200mm

    I also saw a guy with a 70-300 ::ugh:

    I wanted to get some practice, now I'm probably going to rent a 300 or 400 prime.

    I was always told when shooting traditional sports. Always have two faces and a ball. Some of those shots are very nice especially the ambient shots.

    That's what I try for, it just doesn't happen often. ;)

    thank you

    I'd be content with a 200/2 out there :noes:

    in #13 at first glance it looks like #28 for duke doesnt have a head. u can see his helmet on the other side of the gt guy but it took me a little bit. lol

    #1 is bad ass.

    some pretty good action shots in there as well
