This is another throw, but i got some faces in this time Smile
As you can see i have not got a photo shop this time and there are still bags laying about.
I will be looking at not trying to take pics with out so much clutter in the background.
I would be happy with any comments and advice anyone has.
Thanks again for taking the time to take a peek

Very good shot. Shame about the OOF though.

Image lacks sharpness and focus. May be down to a combination of handshake and being out of focus, as well as a shutter speed that is too slow to capture the action. Exposure seems slightly off too. Have uploaded a B&W mind with increased contrast, tonality and sharpness to better emphasise the combat. Also cloned out the white spot distractions on the wall.

oof means Out of focus.

Iso 1600 and the app were about all you could do to maximise the available light.

But even then , the noise is intrusive and 1/160 was neither slow enough for abstract or fast enough for sharpness.

Before the action starts , do a few test shots , check the w.b works and that you are going to have the the right expo and background. Change position or chuck a few of the background distractions away before hand.

etc

In the lighting and setting you are a hiding to nothing. You need a clean clear background and plenty of light. A sports arena would have that, a practice room does not. Try a low viewpoint and flash if you are stuck with this location, but, in summer, (or better weather,) try some shots outdoors.
