Overall they look good. Exposure, color, sharpness, etc is all there. Only thing I would say you should work on is your composition. There is a lot of "dead space" in the photos that you could eliminate by cropping in more.

A very wise photographer once told me "shoot tight, crop tighter".

i have nothing to compare to but they look great. i agree that some of the compositions could be better, i like that advice of shoot tight crop tighter. i just finished doing a live broadcast of football and i was the hero camera and was always shooting a medium shot and my director kept telling me to push in more we want the shot as tight as it gets.

also just for reference its great to try to always get the players face in the photo but that doesnt mean that the best sports shots out there always have faces. action most of the time is more important it just happens that if you can see their face you probably have a great angle on the action

hahaha believe me ... on 5D II ... 70-200 f4L just work like a charm ... at night i pushed 3200 ISO ^^ ... and i still got sharp photos still be able to contain shutter from 400 to 500 good enough to freeze action :)

f4 doesn't suck in low light or night photography all the time. I used a Nikon 200-400 f4 for a while and shot a lot of night high school football with it on my D3 and it worked great. It all depends on the body you are using.

If I put a f4 lens on a $200 body that has no ISO performance its going to suck at night. That same lens on say a D3s or Mk IV at night will work out great in the same conditions.

I'd also like to hear if you folks would think a 50D with a 70-200 f2.8L IS II would work out OK.

I don't know what it is but I love the colors in the first two.

I like #1 alot. I would crop it a bit tighter still though.
