Rick, I like those a lot. They capture the "game within the game" as well as the emotion of each play. The second is neat because it shows not only thepressure of the shot, but also the two fighting for position under the basket. Good work!

Working with the limitations of a 50mm lens and the distance you are taking your shots these came out rather well.

I am sure others who are adept to sports shooting may have already mentioned that. Getting a tighter crop of the action is tough with the lens you are using.

The first shot has distracting element in the foreground.

#2 has that "she shoots, she scores" feeling to it. great job getting the players, the ball and the basket all in the shot... they all work really well together to give it that feeling. i love it! did your team win?

Not so fast there. Just something constructive was shared by me and that should not be the end to your posting here.Praise and critque is different for everyone. Some don't even comment. If you feel that strongly about that, then, that is too bad. You were given pretty much the same comment from a sports shooter that is highly regarded in the sports forum on a previous post.

A 50mm lens is not a very good lens for sports no matter how fast it is. What you did with that limitation was mentioned coming out rather well by me. I really don't see why there is such offense taken as none was given.

I have mentioned more times than I can count how I will not post anymore and have reconsidered. I hope you do the same.

Take Care,

Tom
