    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.

    SRPHOTO,


    If you used the available f/5.6 at your lens' maximum focal length, which you didn't mention, it would start to give a little background blur, and would either allow you to drop your ISO in half for the same shutter speed, or halve your shutter speed for the same ISO (assuming it is already at 100, for example). It would be worthwhile to experiment with it, anyway. If you didn't use your max focal length, then you may be able to open up to f/4 or f/4.5, which would be even better.

    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.
