    I would say not to zoom in so far, or not to crop as much as you did. It would be nice to see what he is seeing. Connects you better with the subject, and therefore the photo looks more appealing. Use the shallowest aperture your lens will allow. If you could get a 2.8 lens, that would be ideal for these shots.

    Good luck!

    Its supposed to be i believe. (I shoot Nikon) Sometimes with many moving objects, though, it gets off a little.
