    The trouble I have is I am trying to jump around, following the action, then I may not be focused in that well. Another approach i took was not zooming in, and trying to catch what I could. Then counting on cropping the picture to center on the action. I have not touched any of the pictures from this weekend, except file compression for shutterfly

    Any advice, or input would be appreciated

    I did remove the watermarking, but it doesnt seem to have taken affect yet. Hopefully soon the site will update and it will go away.

    BTW I took 1667 pictures this weekend, I uploaded 40-50 full size here http://juddga.smugmug.com/Other/ASA-Dublin/12287929_r9DzQ#876600116_JQ2RU

    And I uploaded all the compressed images here http://gaforcered.shutterfly.com/1058

    If you feel like browsing and giving me some general tips, that would be great

    I didn't go through all 1667, but I scanned through about 200 and I think you really need to zoom in closer. Some facial expression would be nice.
    Timing is another factor.

    #186 could be a good candidate to crop if you have the resolution to do it.

    Faces and expressions are the Holy Grail of sports photography.

    These 3 you have posted are underexposed.

    If you don't have a lens with sufficient reach, crop to increase subject scale in the image.
