I don’t do a lot of sports photography but did spend some time with a buddy of mine shooting some NCAA basketball games so I could be at least competent shooting my sons. The biggest thing he ingrained on me was never let the shutter speed go below 1/400. The one above could probably benefit from that advice.  I think a shallower DoF would work better to in isolating the subject as well as the stage in the background takes away from the feel for me.

The flowers are generally nicely done but can be a tough sell as everyone shoots flowers. You would either need to market them hard or you will get lost in the crowd.


Conceptually I gather you are using the hedge to frame the subject but in execution the subject ends up being a too small within the image and the hedge dominates.


Nicely composed with good clouds in the sky that add a lot to the image.
