I much better understand the limiting factors of your shoot now, since you explained it in the other post. Not trying to get down on you but heres a few thoughts, take them as an attempt to help you not as an attack. Last year, baseball season, I was in a similar situation. I was shooting with a D1x, a camera notorious for horrible noise at ISOs above 400. Anyway, I was shooting a baseball game that started late and ran intoextra innings. My settings wouldve been ISO 1600, f/4.5-5.6 and 1/125sec. Totally unusable for any sort of action shot, so I put the big lens away, took out my 50 f/1.4 and stalked the players in the dugout for reaction shots. I also combed the bleachers to get fan reactions. These 2 photos dont really tell me anything at all. I can tell one girl is stretching but I cant see her face so it doesnt work. Capture her wincing as she tries to stretch, capture a team mate on the bench as she jumps up for a great play by her team mates. Capture the girls cheering their teammates on or goofing with each other. Theres a ton of "non action" action shots all around the playing field/court, etc... Sometimes, those are the best sellers.
