A tale of two blocks...1 clean, 2 was flagged for pass interference. Both dropped.

Those last three are golden! Nice! I'm sure he and his parents would love having any of those hanging on their wall.

Nice work, good action. You have that Canon red problem. I usually drop the saturation on the red with flowers. May apply here. My first football game is Saturday. Can't wait.

the only thing I would do different is not crop the last two shots so tight ....show both players


So if God made Man & Woman....whats his excuse for Nikon...

I disagree. cropping on the last three are the better of two evils. If he showed both players, there would be way too much negative space in the upper right.

I'll agree with ewheeler20. Cropping the defenders works for me.

The photos highlight the Anchor Bay players. Magic24 was in position to capture the faces of the red team. The defenders are faceless and won't be any interest to the parents in the months and years to come (unless they become NFL stars).

Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

Like the pose in #5 although the face seems a tad sharper in #4.
Excellent overall. Tough call for interference, looks really close
as far as contact prior to the ball getting there. Having his head
turned toward the ball would have leaned toward the defensive side
I would think.

Thanks for looking, Andy


Andy,

Great pics; thanks for sharing.

I'm a fan of tight cropping, but with that said I agree with the previous poster who suggested keeping both players full bodies in the crop. I posted my pics from last week on FB and now the opposing team members from 100 miles away are tagging each other and commenting on the pics. My pics are of the players for the players and reading the kids comments as well as their parents further motivates me to get out there and get the pics. ;)

Thanks for all the comments! The truth of the matter is, I shoot as tight as possible on the main subject, ie; team in Red (Anchor Bay). Looking back on the photos, if I widen the crop, instead of the defenders backside, I can only get the top upper part of his hamstring...the defender missed the tackle anyway!

Andy,

There's nothing wrong with being so close that you can't expand the crop. I'd prefer to ALWAYS be close enough that I didn't need to crop; it would eliminate the HOURS I spend after a game cropping pics! :lol: Besides if he missed the tackle, he may not ever want to see that pic! :oops:

Great shots, lots of action and great exposure. The only on I did not like #1, just my taste.
