    Looks like you caught the action!


    I would straighten the image so that the fence line is level.

    Try a wider aperture too. It will blur out the background some and help your subject pop.

    I think the image looks fine...and now you know how the addiction starts.


    If you really want spectaculat photos, start looking at the Cannon "L" series glass. I use the EF70-200mm F/2.8 L IS USM lens for a lot of high school sports as well as the EF300mm F/2.8L IS USM. The large aperture of these lens will help you run fast shutter speeds and blur backgrounds.


    Also consider a circular polarizing filter. I deal with a lot of haze in the DFW area and the CPF really helps the saturation of the image.
