shot 1 has nice timing but the exposure is too bright - hot spots on the face. There is also way too much dead space in the frame - you want action to fill the frame. The building is also distracting - part of that is too much depth of field. But in this particular shot that wouldn't matter so much if the image were framed tighter as the hill provides a natural backdrop that isn't very distracting. So, good angle - just needs to be framed tighter and exposure corrected.

Here's an example of what I mean by filling the frame:


Shot 2 - again good timing but you were using a shutter speed way too slow. In addition to motion blur you've got camera shake going on as well. Background is very distracting as well - you need a shallower depth of field - use wider aperture and longer focal length.

By the way, the exif info was stripped on these. I noticed the soccer photos you posted were around 6 years old - are these just as old?

Yes sir, these are around the same time and age as the soccer photos. These were done with my old Nikon N80 SLR so I had to scan them in using a film scanner. I was just getting started in capturing sports.
