Brother decided he wants to play tennis this year for his senior year, so went up with him to the courts today and tried a little shooting to see how I fared. I edited this in Lightroom, first day using it, so Im still learning it. C&C is always welcome!

Great colors and saturation! I would consider opening up your aperture (lower f-stop) to help eliminate the distracting background.

Thanks for adding more pics. The first pic for some reason, TO ME, seems a little to distracting. I just wanted to see if you had more angles :)

I realized this after starting the editing on the 2nd pic. Thought man, shoulda went lower and got some of that background out of there. Oh well, live and learn!

I always try to shoot tight and crop tighter. Also have him hit the ball toward you and you will have better luck getting his face and the ball in the picture.

Absolutely! Trust me, photography is not easy. Now, next time you go out, you'll be working on some new things and you're pictures will be even better.

Trust me when I say this: we're all learning...
