I'd be happy to go home with these after any shoot. Noticed you used manual white balance. I may have to try that as your results show the effort was well worth it.

I like 5 the best.

1) Close but it doesn't tell me a story and while the timing is close the ball in back kills it
2)Good action, but the guy in the back takes away
3) OK he was going for the ball, but why is that keeper?
4) This is better, I like the action, the tight focus, (again with a guy in back, almost like they do it on purpose ) This is more powerful than 3. Does he got the ball? Does he foul? Does the forward go on to score? I like how that picture makes me wonder. Vs 3 where I don't sense urgency from the photo.
5) Not sure if you could crop the fella to the left out, but I like the action, I like that I can see your players eyes, it looks like a white line is at their feet, so this could be a shot, I'm wondering does he score? Again, this one draws me in.
6) I'm guessing ends up with a foul, direct kick for white. For some reason, the guy on the grounds face and the location of the ball detract from the overall picture. Obviously, IMHO.

Keep it up, I love looking at soccer photos!

Appreciate the detailed C&C...yeah I was torn on 5, couldn't really get enough of the guy out and leave enough room for the remaining player...

#5 yes, shot just outside the box...that's a FB yard marker.

No foul called..but both coaches weren't happy w/ this set of refs.

Chris,
Some good action here. It would appear that the Boys HS soccer has more frequent intensity / action than the girls side. Don't get me wrong, the girls have action and contact, just a bit less slide tackles and arial jousting.

5 was my top pick. I played with the crop really quickly and my vote lands on the following suggestion to make it a stronger composition (my opinion)- crop the left side off to eliminate the tips of the knuckles on the extra players hands. This will leave the entire offender on the frame. I realise you chop the bent elbow but only a little but retain the upper and lower parts of the arm. I liked it, much more focused subject and ball. To your likening crop extra space on right side or leave.

If you like, post up your results.

I still owe you some , Midwest FH.

hey thanks Mike...yup, which accounts for some of the 'odd' values, e.g. ISO 1800

Chris....nice set and #6 is a winner for me. On that first one with the ball in the back of the head...I never really took notice too much - but this past weekend I shot a men's soccer game and there were more headers with the back of the heads that I've ever seen....usually in front of the goal. FWIW.

FWIW, I don't find the ball behind the heads in #1 a problem at all - it's fairly common. Great use of light and exposure to get that lovely dark background.

These images all give me a story. The color is great and exposure and focus are all spot on.

Enjoyable set here.
