    Pretty nice shots; they draw you in. Have you try experimenting with panning and a slower shutter for background blur?

    I think you need to get closer to the action, as Robert Capa said if the photos not good enough your not close enough

    I don't think I follow... Using the last photo as an example, how do you get "closer" without turning an action shot telling a story (you've got team members, the main subject, and the playing field) any closer without turning it into a portrait? To me, it does tell a story. Just curious as I really don't understand.

    ic what he is saying but any closer they dont look right and i was right on the out of bounds line so i could not get any closer. If i used a zoom i would of had to stand back and then get the reffs and other people in my way

    You could have been behind shooting at 17mm with the enemy in veiw, look for different angles get right behind someone as they are shooting

    i like to get close to the action
