Tim... you were holding out on us, weren't you. You tease! That last soccer shot despite your insightful analysis, which I agree with, is still damn good. Gymnastics and soccer shooter extraordinaire, Russ Isabella and I had a discussion a while back regarding facial expressions and females. Female athletes, IMO have to be captured not only looking athletic, but beautiful too. It's an extra layer. The expression on her face above as you have pointed out, is something to be conscious of, but in this case, I think it's more than acceptable. This to me, is normal contortion that doesn't detract from her athletic "grace". It's not unflattering. As for the shadow, the face can be dodged a bit to make up for it, but overall, I think it's fine. The only thing I would suggest is to crop more out from the left side, leaving just that one BG player behind the header girl. The girl on the far left needs to be cropped out.
See if Russ catches the thread and he may chime in.
