    honest opinoin... he needs to use his right knee to block the top guys hips for an easier return. and 2ndly the 2nd pic is not a cradle....

    picture wise i like the first seeing the reaction on the kids face. i also shoot wrestling and have the same proble i see in yours... the unnatural look of the flash. i dont mind it so much but i would like to figure out how to get brighter pics with less flash

    I know it can be hard, but I would like to see more of the faces in the second shot.

    LOL I originally posted 3 shots, the last was a cradle, but the pictures were sized way to small. When I fixed it, I left out the 3rd by accident.

    I agree on the flash especially on paste white skin. I was shooting with a 30D, ISO 200, and my 70-200 2.8 IS at 2.8. The same day, there was a pro company that had 8 strobes on wireless shooting with 5 1dsMark3’s. They had no problems with lighting or higher ISO’s that’s for sure.

    I am going to a 580EX from my 430, and may try the ring or some other type of diffuser that the strobist recommends or may try some gels for a more natural look.

    I always try and catch the expressions, but cathching the action is more of the chalange.
