I think you have done a fine job. Sometimes we try to get to close to the action and get the "can't see the forest for the trees" syndrome (no context), you have kept enough background to give your images context. Peak action, wide enough for context and faces showing are the three commandments of sports photography in my book, and you have achieved that.

You may have a real money maker here, a friend of mine shoots minor hockeyand has all of the parents clamouring for pictures.

Ira, It kinda started by accident. I was just playing with the K10d the first time I went out there and as soon as parents saw the camera they started asking about pictures. I was only there shooting my step-brother. It's been 3 weeks since then and in that time, I have started a web-page, actually made a few sales already, andmanaged to get atravelingleague that wants me to do their team photos (guarenteed money! At least1 package per kid). Everything is happening so fast... I LOVE IT!

Shoot wide open. It is necessary to blur the background.

Shoot a faster shutter speed. Bat and ball blur is a bit much in some shots.

Shoot closer and tighter with your shot. Not necessary to get the full body in the shot. Experiment with it and see what looks better to the parents. After all, they are the ones that want to buy them.

Try using continuous mode if you already haven't.

Shooting swing and a miss is not ideal.

Excellent Shots. They are by no means feeble!! The best thing To do is just what you are doing. Ask and try Different things. Soon you will find What Works for you.
Just remember, You must be doing Something right if people want to Purchase Your pictures.
