Changing weather and light i.e. taken during dusk and then when the floodlights are on / fully on. The light's are not that good. Taken from iso 640-1600, f2.8-3.5 and shutter 1/320-1/640.

Gretna, the whites, won 2-1 despite livingston (in yellow/amber) playing with ten men for an hour and missing a last minute penalty (see below).

Like the 3rd shot of the header - nice timing.

Most of the others are fairly sharp, but the timing is just wrong for me - not really peak action. So, while they may be good technically the lack of action detracts for me. So, my only advice is to work on your timing. In several cases the photo could be improved IMO by capturing the ball in-frame. Without the ball, they lose interest.

But exposure and sharpness seem to be there!

The ball is only missing in the first and last shots? I cropped it out the first as it was miles away and the second was more a focus on the actual player after missing.

Although, I do agree with the action perspective, number 4 is a bit dead for example I know. Cheers on the exposure credit.
