    Good shots, but you can get much more impact by adding some extra contrast to the shots. Like this...

    Hi James,

    I had to sort out the images for you - Do be sure to put numbers and blank lines between them, both to aid critique and also stop you pasting one image tag inside another. (that's why only two showed up at first) -thanks.

    Good focus and capturing the moment on these.

    As Rob has shown, a bit of contrast enhancement helps.

    Setting the black and white points in PP would improve things too - on a histogram, all of these don't exploit the full range. In fact I almost wonder if there wasn't something masking the shots (e.g. a wire fence?) #1 seems to have something across the top of frame.

    Cheers,

Also thanks for your contrast tip Rob , Darien really pops now.I hung around and talked with the kids after the game, they are 14 year olds and were very excited about my pics so I"ll probably take there coach some copies when I go back next week.

    Fun shots, James. I bet the coach and the kids will be thrilled to get copies. Rob's extra contrast give them a bit more punch.
