Your horizons are off on some... Don't know why you have different crops, like #10 foot cut off...

Nicely exposed for the faces... that can be tough with backlighting.

I'm not a fan of square crops. Especially #12 which could lose a lot of dead space on the sides and be nicer as a standard 2:3.

Frank and Clarence, thank you for the feedback. I need to work on my cropping skills. I am not a good judge of which crop looks better than others. I do try not to chop appendages off though. As for #10, that foot chopped off was not a result of my cropping, it was a product of my underdeveloped shooting skills. I chopped that foot off in camera when I took the shot. I missed it.

Again, thank you for the feedback.

I'm with the others on getting tight. And while the faces are exposed well, the highlights seem a little blown out, especially 7 & 11. I think some of that could be solved in processing. If it's a backlighting issue, make sure you move to the other side of the field.
I like the action in #1. Again, crop out the kids watching idly in the background and the action will pop more.

All these photos were taken with a canon 1dIIn and a 200 2.8 with 1.4 tele or a 70-200 2.8 with the 1.4 tele, I will be using a 300 4.0 this weekend, probably with the 1.4, but I will be experimenting.

wjfagan,

Thanks for the comments. I will work on the exposures. I am relegated to one side of the field and have to work with the sideline I have access to but there is obviously room for improvement. Thanks.

Not too bad over all. Do I see a hint of the dodge tool on a couple faces? Or maybe a shadow/highlight adjustment?

Marty,

Thanks for your comments. The only adjustments made was for a couple of them I had to bump up the brightness, a slight wb adjustment, dial up the contrast on a couple, apply sharpening and my attempts to crop.

In that case, you did a great job exposing for the faces.

Thanks,
Marty

Publications detest square format photos because they're extremely difficult to design typical pages with, just keep that in mind in you have future aspirations of getting your work published.

Marty,

Thank you for the comment. I will keep working on exposure as I keep working on composition, getting tighter and cropping.

Pixel, Thanks for the tip!
