Default Tennis

In an effort to keep my sports shooting hand in, as well as to have some good old fun (I love shooting sports), while we were out today playing some tennis, I took the 7D and 70-200mm f2.8 in the hope of getting some action.

These were a coach and student practicing, nothing too exciting but was helpful in sorting my eye and timing out. These are basically uncropped apart from the first which had a bit of a slant on it so needed a straighten. The problem with trying to frame tight in camera is the shot with the lost arm, but can't have it all, I want shallow dof and focus on the subject so hopefully will frame better next time.

C&C welcome.

Looks like a good start Mark.
One thing I learned long ago is when treking into waters you havn't been in before its always nice to have some time to get past the simple things like being prepared fo the action with timing and framing, exposure etc.
