I'm putting together a portfolio of sports photos and would like to hear some opinions other then my own and my friends.

From a consumer perspective and not a photography pro perspective:

#1,#2,#4 and #5 are amazing captures, #1 grabs me the most.

#3 and #6 don't do much for me.

The last two don't stand out, they are well composed but they don't seem to be capturing much action or emotion.

I can't give you any technical C&C sorry, and I hope I helped.

QUOTED IMAGE

Taken after the scary hit on Jahvid Best vs the Beavers?

All are great images in my opinion.

Yep the photo was taken during the OSU vs. Cal game.

I can see how some of the photos do lack some action or emotion. Here were a few others to choose from.

Now THAT's some good variety! Not just the usual football/baseball/bask​etball but cycling, gymnastics, XC running, rally racing, AND skiing.

Bravo.

The cycling one is awesome.

Just out of curiosity how many of the photos on this page were shot using the 7D?

8 of the photos were taken with the 7D. It is a great camera.
