Nice pictures :D Make's me wanna do that. You've surely seen Thomas' review of that lens.
Just got it? What do you think about it? :D

For the pictures, maybe you should set the exporsure a little bit down, and turn up the Blacks? Just think they would be a little more powerful and outstanding that way :D

I like #3 best. Good view of the action and generally a better balanced shot. The ref in the background is a lucky bonus. If this is a crop I would suggest a slightly wider crop at the top and a little bit at the bottom too. Or a closer one in portrait orientation in 4:3 format with the full height of the current photo and going from the chest in the bottom left corner to the hand in the top right.

I would also suggest a 4:3 crop of the current one to remove the empty space on the right side.

It looks like you will get a lot of pleasure from that lens. :)

Ben

Nice shoots! I'm thinking also getting this Tamron telephoto, the images are awesome (specially the Nº 3)... What's the EXIF info??? Have you use this lens with a converter (Let's say 1.4x or 2x)??? Don't forget to post the soccer images also ><

Cheers!

Nop, no converter. They were all shot at f/2.8, and most of em were around 1/800, and ISO 200
