Here's a couple of my first shots out of my new D80. These are of a random kayaker. I basically just pointed and kept clicking. How do I best compose shots like these? They are almost full tele, but I wondering if I wasn't fitting in enough.

All comments welcome.

Thanks.

And number 3 - I tried to include more, but I think it actually looks better cropped .

I think you did an awesome job.

Try turning your camera 90 degrees and taking some shots landscape.

Thanks. Here's acouple in landscape They didn't 'grab' me quite as much. I'm not sure why. I'm also not really sure why I'd pick one over the other. As an aside, the ISO was accidentally at 1000 . Would this make a difference?

And another. I think that these were taken quickly, but not in burst mode - in single shot. Would it make a difference? ALL suggestions are welcome.

I think it looks good, even at ISO1000.

Probably they don't grab you as much is you'd probably need to take the shots "side on" to make the landscape orientation make sense.
