A few need to be cropped more, but try to get a few closer pictures as well.
Looks like the dude with the black rotor needs some help laning, ha.

Colors look fine, but nailing your focus is more important. Closer/tighter cropping will definitely help. Look to get some movement - A big problem with my shots has been too many static playing shots.

Never go near that stuff :lol::rolleyes:

Great pictures considering what type of camera you were using….now I sort of feel embarrassed carrying around my two Mark III and my 300 2.8 prime.:oops:
BTW Where were these taken?

In photo 1 starting from left to right is Billy Bernachi (Hurricanes), Meko (Iron Men), Ollie (Iron Men), Colt Robertson (Naughty Dogs?) and Mike Paxson (Iron Men) in the background

In photo 2 and 3 Ollie Lang, photo 4 not sure and photo 5 looks like Nicky Cuba

Does that make me into paintball?

He's actually wearing a "Bullets" jersey. He played for them in the Millenium series.

to help solve the focus problem, can you just select the right side point by itself on that camera, so if buddy is going to run and you have him on the right side, the lens won't focus on what's in the middle of the shot and screw up your focus

colors look pretty good

Glad to see all of the paintball photographers are from So Cal. ;]

Pictures are decent. Like others said, get lower, crop tighter, etc.
