Hi Randy, you have captured the action well here. Good sharp focus. I would however be tempted to crop a little of the bottom, certainly crop out the shadow. Nice one like it

The action comes across well and the lighting is good. However what spoils it for me is the person standing in the background. For me it really interferes with the main action. But certainly has lots of potential.

very quirky and the ction is captured very well, especially the almost-touching of the ball and the foot. i agree about a crop from the bottom, that bit isn't contributing anything. you could also try and crop from the right and lose the goalpost, and really concentrating on the feet and the ball. The post is quite distractindg as it is and dcompetes for attention with the other elements - there's enough of the netting in the background to keep the goalpost theme

Just my thoughts, nice work either way..
