Coaching by his Grandfather. (His other Grandfather.)

Good to see you posting some sports shots. I would say they are a little flat and not enough saturation as they are lacking pop. Another thing if you get a chance to go and shoot again (hopefully you will), get a lot lower, this is important in adult sports and essential in children's. I would suggest sitting on the ground for a pleasing angle.

I really like the one at 2nd base, a great expression.

Thanks for the comments. Unfortunately, it was heavily overcast that day, so the colors weren't great. I really like his expression in #2 also. (I didn't post the one where he was picking his nose.)

I'll keep in mind the pointer about getting lower. The parents are all over the place, coaching their children, so I had to keep moving in order to get the shots I wanted. Sitting on the ground would have been tough, plus the grass was wet.

LOL, yes parents are a pain ;). I'm sure you can get most of it back with a bit of PP. How about this as a quick edit?

Nice! I'll have to take another look at my shots.

What a great age, brings back a ton of memories, unfortunately for me I wasnt into photography back to document those times. One thing Id recommend would be to crop out the distractions. Errant legs, body parts, etc...Also, try to shoot in portrait mode a little more.Most of my baseball shooting is in portrait.

hope you dont mind me "exampleizing" your photo.

You've captured an amazing series TCav! If I was the father, grandfather or just the parent of these kids, I'd be buying from you.

Heck no! I post here to be an example (good or bad) for others, but more important, for myself.

I will say that I think your example is a bit overcropped for my taste, but I'll keep your suggestions in mind. Thanks.

Fair enough, thats the beauty of it all. I wouldve liked to capture the full height of the father but it wouldve left too much dead space on the right and none on the left. Theres just no use for the "kneeler" at all. LOL
