    Hi, this is my first attempt at taking sports photos, this weekend... Garryowen vs UL Bohs... Comments / Suggestions are welcome :)

    (No post-processing was done, just cropping and resizing to make it easier to fit on this forum)

    A little bit over exposed I know... The girl's jacket is just a white blob :(... He missed the kick...

    Same guy placing the ball for another shot...

    Again a bit overexposed...

    This would have been my favourite if it wasn't for the blurring! :( Trying to figure out if it was camera shake or focus... Can't remember the particular exposure settings...

    This is my favourite one I think... Any suggestions on what could be done / have been done to improve this?

    Not sure how to crop this one, I am thinking something like...

    I actually like this one, apart from the slight underexposure. Not sure whether to rotate it back to "upright"... you lose some of the action or else have white triangles at the corners... Also the diagonal picture gives a kind of acticious feeling... Final score was 18-5 to Garryowen in case you're curious :)

    Yeah I was using the auto-focus mainly but when they are running around so much it's hard to keep the auto-focus sample point (or whatever it's called) accurate...

    Thankfully the weather was reasonably good so no need for long exposures.
