At The Point of Delivery

At The Point of Delivery by fentiger

On a strict critique basis, your aperture is too small and your shutter speed is too slow. A better image would result if you corrected those two things.


Soccer by WimpyIskandar

Sport should be shot with your aperture wide-open so your selection of f2 is good, but you've selected shutter priority and at 1/500th your shutter speed is too slow. Shoot in aperture priority and keep your aperture wide-open. Make sure you get a faster shutter speed by manipulating your ISO.

Also, if you look at the blades of grass you will see that those a little way behind the player are more in focus than the ones under the player so either you or your autofocus have missed the player.

Ignore the advice to step your aperture down. Instead manipulate your ISO to gain a faster shutter speed and practice more until you're used to your camera, the speed of the autofocus, and your own capabilities.

This is a great start and I'm jealous of your 1Dx. With practice you'll produce better photos. Keep going.

Wahey! Proper sports photography, from a real sports photographer. Well played, Sir... well played. Smile

Training session. Doesn't count. Tongue

Good hand off

Good hand off by YoungGrandad

In most of these photos that you post your shutter speed is too slow to freeze the action, and the players are too far away to be a really striking image. Research some sports photo techniques, wait til you're much nearer the action, and employ some post-processing to boost your saturation and contrast.

Comming through

Comming through by YoungGrandad

With all due respect, these photos are a series of snapshots, not sports photos. You have your camera on settings that display a lack of understanding of exposure, and your shutter speed is way, way too slow to freeze the action. Your perspective on the action is always shot too wide, despite your lens extending to 500mm.

Can I recommend a really good book on sports photography and suggest you do a bit of
studying? Your passion and effort are commendable but without a little more knowledge, your results will continue to need work.

The foreground obstruction is too distracting to make his a keeper, for me. Sorry.


Rodeo by rbai2007

Sorry, but the clear digital manipulation of this image is very distracting.

The horrendous scars on the flanks of the horse show just what an abhorrent attitude the owners of these animals have towards them.

Pity about the aperture and the finger cut-off. F4 might have made this really leap off the page.

Not seen a sports/action shot like this in a long time. Did you have a sideline pass? Tongue

Give me a leg up.

Give me a leg up. by wentnorth

It's a nice capture but if you look at the details in the blades of grass, it looks as though your focus is some way behind the action, perhaps catching the referee more sharply. Nice to see some 'real' sport on here though - keep up the good work. Smile

Pure sport photography = no cloning out or removal of background 'distractions'. Keep the art pure, like this photo does.

Needs a white balance.

Sarries vs Sale Sharks

Sarries vs Sale Sharks by rogerdoger

Clearly shockingly-poor floodlights. You've overcome them very well. Good white balance too.

Nice to see some really good technique and ability in this section. Grin



Too much digital manipulation for my liking
