Here are some shots from Sunday's game. I'm looking for some thoughts on #2 and #3....which one does everyone think works better. I'm on the fence with these.

These were shot mostly with the Canon Mark IV and 400 2.8....except the first one where I used the 17-40 4.0....but it is shots like #1 where I wished I had a fisheye. That is one lens I need to add to my collection in 3013.

As always....C&C welcome.

Frank

Fantastic shots!
What did a tighter crop on #2 look like to you? Maybe consider less space on that one?
#3 works because of the secondary subject but I'm also wondering on the look if it was a little tighter on the right of the frame.

Good stuff.

#2 for me Frank. The symbolism of the ball carrier all by himself holding up the number 1 = Winner!

The only thing I wonder about is why are you going to wait almost a thousand years to buy the fish? 3013?!?! I'm a Nikon shooter, but I can't imagine Canon gear is THAT expensive.

Chris & Mike.....thanks for taking the time to comment. Mike I will have to play around a bit more later when I get home.

Rick....the ball carrier by himself is the one I'm favoring more. For waiting till 2013....mainly because I just lost out to my conscience and bought a 1DX that should arrive at my door today. So I'm deferring the fishy a while longer.

As a hobbyist, my opinion is worth less than $0.02. #2 would be my pick. I actually dig the looser crop since it gives the appearance that it's all him, out in the open, running away with it.

All great shots.

I agree with Rick and Snap - No. 2 for sure. You just KNOW there are 21 other players behind him . . . no need to add the defender. Having said that, if I only had #3, I would very happy with it. #2 is just better. That is MHO. Great shots, as always.

Strong set, Frank! Love the colors and the action. I'd have to go with #3 since it's got both the 'thrill' and the 'agony.' Otherwise it's just a back yard fantasy (though still a sweet shot).

Frank... you missed the joke. You said 3013 in the initial post.

WOW....did I ever...and by miles too. Like hot flashes for for women (and men)...I'm having these senior moments constantly. It's scary......

Last week I used my 200 1.8 lens for a night football game, changed the location where I usually kept it after the game and thought it was in the case where it was usually kept...Not there...checked my car....not there...checked the case again....still not there. Literally tore the place apart....couldn't find it. Talk about hot flashes, tears, sweats, chills all happening at the same time.

Five minutes seemed like a lifetime...my only thought was I set it down to change a lens and forgot to pick it up and left it at the game. Then I walked into my basement office and my eyes locked onto this shelf/unit and things started to come back. I walked over to it and looks at it square on....there was the lens.

After that....I said my heart can withstand anything.

Now every time I walk out of the house with my gear.....my wife (busting my stones) asks if I'm sure I have all my gear.

So yeah.....I totally missed that one.

But here is the sure cure all

Really dig #2 for the same reason above, would have picked #3 is the defender was sprawled out all over the grass and missed the tackle. But in this defender looks tired and offered nothing else to the action.

I am glad I am not the only one that gets his stones busted when trying to remember everything before I leave for a game!
