These are fantastically sharp which is great..... however for me I'm not really feeling the action apart from in the last one. I could be the crops (no legs so there is feel for speed, movement), it could be that I'm not overly familiar with Lacrosse or something else. I do like the facial expression that you have captured in the 2nd shot.

It's great to see something different here though and we have not seen much from you so I would encourage you to post more and share with us.

Great lens, isn't it?

I agree with Mark - number 2 is nice. Number 4 has great potential but it looks flat. Look at the color/contrast of that shot vs. 2 & 3 - they're much livlier. I think if you fix that, #4 could be the best shot of the bunch.

Thanks for sharing!
