Here is a tighter crop. Which one works better?

Thanks

Personally I prefer the full shot to the cropped version. It shows the more dynamic action of the moment. I think there is too much focus on the ball in the cropped version.

I agree. If you do want the tight crop - try switching to a horizontal. I think full will still work better but with the horizontal you'll keep the arms in the frame.

Nice capture - just needs some USM to sharpen it up.

Really nice shot. I definitely like the first one better because it includes the action of the legs.
