Good composition(s).

But, with the bright backlighting, maybe a little fill flash would have helped (especially the top pic). Not sure how far away you were from Santana in that second pic.... not to mention, it's probably not advised to strobe a pro athlete while they're playing/training.

Nice pics. And you guys leave my Mets alone! It's gonna be a big year for them this year. Funny, I find myself saying that about the Saints all the time too!
