Welcome to the sports forum.

4 is definitely the best of the bunch.

You've got some nice action here and exposure looks good. But most are a bit soft - could partially be due to the image resizing. Either that or they're over-cropped.

Shot 3 is a perfect example - nice action, but look how soft the letters on the uniform are. This looks like an example of cropping too much. 1/750 is plenty to prevent the motion blur. Similar with shot 2 above it - either focus was off or its too much of a crop.

I think you've got a good eye for action, if you can get the sharpness (either by waiting until the action is within range of your 200mm or improving focus technique) you'll have some stellar shots. Exposure and WB is good on all these, they just need to be a bit sharper.

The lighting is great. Are these shots through the glass? Most of the ones in your album are f/2.8, between 1/600 and 1/800 shutter speed, and hanging around iso400-800. Based on that, is this lens a 70-200? I only glanced at a few of the focal lengths listed in the pictures (which, by the way, I thank you for posting -- it saves us from having to dive into any EXIF data to find it)

yes, those shots are through a plastic shield with a 70-200 f2.8, and mainly i will use a save shutter 1/300+ shuttler speed while using this lens

ps: Fotop provide the Exit info also ! but iit make the photoa little bit blur compare with the orginal photo.
