    1/800, iso 800, f/2.8. Should I have bumped the iso some more?

    I would say push the shutter up to like 1000 or a little higher and adjust ISO accordingly because your aperture is probably going to be bottomed out

    This...

    Although I find with fast moving things, some times you need to also goto a higher F stop to get a large enough DOF to compensate for focus error/body lag.

    I usually shoot polo at F5.6/7ish.... Some times it requires higher iso, some times not. I try to user a higher ISO though so I can expose the shadows of the image a little better due to the harsh nature of the sun. I try to target about 1/2000 or better.

    Also try to get lower so to bring the action more into view. Like on some of the ones with the ball. If you look at #2 it looks like you were focused on his ass, by increasing your DOF you can eliminate the nuances of focus accuracy with a moving target.

    Last one is kinda lulz.
