Nice shots. Good, level horizons. Plenty of light. They may be just a tad overexposed, but nothing that can't be corrected in post-processing.

Don't be afraid to crop those shots really tight! #3 could lose the entire left side of the image because those guys really aren't part of the 'face-mask' focus of the frame. 2 looks like a pretty good crop, and you could lose a lot of the dead space at the top of #1.

Pretty good stuff if this was your first time!

Originally I thought they were all over-exposed, but if you were exposing for the faces, then it works fine to lose the white details.

I agree with snyderman about the crops. In #1, I see where you're avoiding cropping the ref and crowd. But IMHO, if you cut the ref below the sleeves, it's OK.

In #2, if you rotate a click CCW, you'll straighten the horizon, lose the partial knee and fingers on the left edge, but keep the ball carrier's shoe. Then crop out a smidgen more on the right edge to lose the rest of the first down stick.

#3, go ahead and crop out the top and bottom... I prefer a standard 4x6 (2:3) AR. Crop below the [3] and below their cleats.

Thanks everyone. I see what you mean about the crops... which is normally my biggest point of confusion - where to crop! I did try to over-expose a bit so the faces would be more visible.. but maybe did a tad too much. Hopefully I will be able to get out and shoot another game soon. My niece is a cheerleader which is why I was there in the first place. :D

Look good. But you paid for a 2.8 lens, you should use it at 2.8 to reduce background clutter and to increase the focus on the main subject. As much as is possible with a 1.6 cropper.

I agree. Or better yet, sit down to get that low angle.

Yep... I have a 18"x18" piece of thick clear plastic that I keep folded in my camera bag for this exact purpose.

I do that too, and wear my jogging pants or loose khaki's with kneepads underneath.... I've got old knees.

Thanks for the tip! I hadn't thought of that but does make sense. I'm definitely going to try it out at the next game I do.
