Hi, I don't do much action/sports photography but I would like to try some more like this one. C&C on how I could improve this type of shop welcome.

The paddles in front of the faces spoil the action.... I am not sure whether it is DOF or motion that make it soft - may be a bit of both.

Thank you both.

The gear was a Canon 60D with a 70-300 IS set at 300mm. I was out walking and they came around the bend in the canal so I didn't have much time to think or set the camera properly. I had been taking some pictures of swans and ducks so the shutter was set at 1/400 just to stop camera shake and not fast movement. This is a crop of about 35% of the image captured.

I agree about the paddles blocking the faces. I managed to snap a couple more but this was the best one. I need to go out and get more practice.
