I think #2 is the best shot. I believe that you have to have the face in a good shot. The expression adds a lot and the tight framing is good composition for basketball. WB looks correct and focus is sharp. #2 is a winner.

Thanks, Mike. I agree on "the face in the shot" comment, with number 2 being my favorite as well. The main reason I put the others in is that I was very happy at how fast the 85mm focused to follow the action & keep up with the 10 fps of my mkIII. Also, the player is my son and I marvel at the fact that he can get up to the rim at only 5'10" tall. He can dunk straight on, but he almost was high enough to dunk on this reverse. A little fatherly pride, LOL.
