First time at sports photography..Started off with something a little more extreme and put me in some sticky situations...Great day though.

I really like the #6 shot! Color, composition, and the bullet!

Which lens did you use?

I agree, number 6 is nice, maybe crop out the purple on the far left though.

If Pete has CS4 he could use the stamp tool to get rid of it. (I like the corner on the bag)

It's a nice attempt, although the photos lack a bit of motion/action. It's very hard to capture (I'm pretty sure I can't do it yet), but maybe it's something to keep in mind for your next try :)

I like the colors though, and paintball photography sounds like a lot of fun!

Thanks guys for the replies...and ya Citruspers..I was shooting way too fast to be showing any kind of motion at all...I should have shot in Shutter priority mode...but instead I shot in Aperture to keep a nice blurry background. I guess I could have achieved the same effect and more dramatic if I shot at something around 1/125, there will be a next time don't worry.

Victor:

All my shots were done with the Sigma 70-200 f2.8 lens.

Cheers guys and thanks for the feedback
