Rocked a gripped 5Dii and a EF 70-200 f2.8L with an opteka monopod. Not bad for my first try I'd say :cool:

Crop to the action. Floodlit matches are always a challenge.

Agree with Hannya on the cropping but all in all, a very nice set. The exposure is bright enough that I'd spend just a tiny bi of time on these in post and adjust my shadows and highlights on the unis but otherwise, I'd say you are good to go following that and a crop.

Ahh, I like the crop. I'm not a fan of those photos on here that are way too cropped!

A bunch of work went into shadows and highlights and I like the way they came out!

Everything was shot in raw, a bunch of noise reduction and sharpening in LR then some color adjustments and stuff in PS.

ohhh, I misunderstood and assumed they were posted for crit. I'll step aside then and let the back patting continue. Pardon the interruption.

I would listen to what Scott has to say. He has been doing this for a while and doing it correctly. He has helped me tremendously and I always look forward to his recommendation. What he and Hannya has said to you is good advice.

I'm not saying what they had to say was wrong, but just not preference. I just dislike sport photos that are awkwardly cropped too close on the subject.

Well, its your choice. But I think these are awkwardly cropped too loose. There's dead space top and bottom on #1 and you chopped a player in half, dead space to the left on #2, dead space to the right on #3.

I want to keep the same aspect ratio though. I don't like square or odd shaped cropped photos.

That's why you use the crop tool in photoshop and contrain it to the aspect you want (mine are always 4x6). Then you can see what will be cropped and what won't be cropped. Some of these should be a little tighter as stated. You caught good action in all of them. Wide shots are mainly for images that show the "mood" of a game in sports photography.

Well here you go. Cropped it and I HATE how it looks. Just looks super cheesy to me now.

It probably looks awkward because it is a nothing photo with missed timing. It still isn't cropped tight enough too.

Shoot tight, crop tighter unless you are specifically going for a shot that requires you to go wide. People want to see eyes, faces, and emotion, not a bunch of ants chasing a white pebble.
