yea i was pretty much testing the waters and my new 70-200. there wasnt that much good action on the field that day besides my buddy diving into a bunker, having his hopper break into 2 and then get shot while he was trying to put it back together aha which is the 2nd to last shot

Looks pretty good. and of course, more action, stay low, and shoot your heart out.

The biggest thing that bothers me is the weird crops/sizes of the pictures. but that might just be a me thing.

I'd say good effort if you say this is your first time shooting paintball.

looks like some good fun was had. but i would recommend putting some space between your photos when you post them. because these two look funny together.
