NIce and tight captures. But I think something might have happened in the re-size. All but the last shot are looking soft. There is no exif in the images. So difficult to say whether they've been overcropped or not.

your file sizes are hovering around 100KB so i would take JohnG's advice and check that out. you dont want the bot to be resizing and messing with your pics

Nice captures as John G has already remarked. They look soft on my monitor as well.

When you say "soft look" are you referring to the subject in sharp focus but the background out of foucs? That's a shallow depth of field, and it's obtained by using a large aperture.

no as previously stated by yourself and other posters as the first 3 look soft(the subject) .I have many sports shots and other photos that look "soft" as apposed to very sharp.....i'm just wondering if it is the lense.

It could be the lens, the camera, your post processing. What camera & lens was used? how much did you crop? what is your post processing workflow?
