I would appreciate if you guys would take a look at these photos and give some helpful feedback. I know the one where the guy is jumping for the ball in the endzone is in a lot of shadows, but on that play they came out with twins to that side, and their best receiver was isolated in single coverage on the other side of the field, and I expected the ball to go to him (the other guy). I know they love to throw fades to the back right corner, but this time they went back left. I adjusted to get the shot, but there was nothing more I could do from where I was.

First thing....let everyone know what your settings were, it looks like the EXIF data is stripped from the images. Especially the shot settings (iso, f-stop, shutter speed)

I'm by any means no expert, but this is what I've learned from a lot of people on this board....

Straighten out your horizons, ideally when shooting or fix in post processing. Set your lens to the smallest numbered F-stop to get less depth-of-field (if you already didn't). Shoot as tight as your lens allows, then crop even tighter...isolate the action to get rid of the background. They look a little soft to me as well (not clearly in focus).

I'm sure others will have more, but those are the big ones that jump out to me.

The action is pretty good on these 2 shots, but like Dwane said, make sure to fix the horizons.

Action is nice, crops are too loose, fix the horizons.
