I'll try cropping a bit tighter and see how they look.

Watch those backgrounds

Not quite sure what you mean?

Thanks

I prefer to have a better view of the face on shots of the high jump. Here are some suggestions.

I'd say crop a bit tighter, and make sure you have very little in the background if you can. It can be distracting when looking at the photo if you have a lot going on behind the subject.

Good article.

I would like to see more of the face too.
The back grounds are tough I was behind the fence and if I did try to kneel down it would have been in my way. I did try for a different angle unfortunately I was facing into the sun.

I would crop in tighter but the shots aren't that sharp.

Thanks
John
