Typically, I don't photograph sports but I was driving home the other day and caught the tail end of a game. Decided to give it a shot...it was quite a bit harder than I thought. I think I snapped off about 50-60pics using burst mode. For the most part, the 70-200II and 5D3 did their job, but 200mm is definitely not enough for football. Most of these are near 100% crops so IQ isn't exactly perfect.

Any comments/critique/sugg​estions to do better next time I find myself on a sideline?

Pretty good action shots -- except for the 20 yard line marker. You got the faces in the others, which is the single most important thing. I would tone down the saturation a bit.

Thanks Joe. Yes, I did bump up vibrance and saturation a bit. It was a cloudy, overcast day so they started out looking very flat/dull. I was tring to make them pop a bit. Is it the green that looks over saturated, or all colors?

For the yard marker, I wish I had closed down the aperture a bit more to at least be able to make out the jersey numbers.

The greens definitely are, and the yellows are borderline to me. I like the shots though.

All the colors are over saturated. Easy fix though. The elements and compositions are there already.

I like them, fix the saturation and you have some winners

"field vision" is great, but he looks like an amputee :(

Agree as well on the over saturation. Also, watch those horizons. I know it's hard to do when shooting, but it's one of my first things I correct when editing anything.
