I'm new to sports photography and that day it was 22 degrees outside. :lol:

Alphie - first shot is very nice. Just crop it down a little tighter by bringing the upper right corner in. Nice action.

#2 is pretty good - I like the inclusion of the blockers - but you might try some dodging of the runner's face - it's a little shadowed.

3 is nice action but it's all backs - an unfortunate thing with sports shooting. From the other sideline this would be a really nice shot.

And each of these is a bit off center - look at the fence - both the vertical and horizontal lines are off - a lot of times a hill will make the horizontal lines slant but the vertical lines of trees and posts are usually realiable for determining whether the shot is level. Good news is - it's extremely easy to fix. Just add that step to your Post processing workflow - whenever you crop, fix the level

For your first time you did really well. These are nice and sharp and the colors are good

Thank you so much for the comments and pointers. I will definitely keep that in mind when I shoot the next flag football game. :-)
