Nice action but a little too unclear to be fully effective, I feel. I really like the composition, though.

Very clear, good action shot. It bothers me that the girl who is in focus has her back to you, but it's not terrible. I like the determination on the girl who is looking straight at the camera's face. I almost wish she was in focus and the girl with the ball was a little blurry, might have made for a pretty interesting shot. Field hockey is fun to shoot though :-) Nicely done.

Great viewpoint and DOF. Very crisp and clear with a nice touch of action and dust motion. Excellent.

I'd love to see it with the focus on the defender. Nice capture

good freeze on the action - need face(s) in focus - good exposure for tonal range from white to very dark, tough shot shows photographer has experience

Nice depth of field and you can see the grit kicked up by the shoes! Cool.

Very good action capture with nice lines. My eye was carried to the ball.

Nice shot. The composition is good, the DoF works well, and the little puffs of dust add to the shot nicely.

Wonderful focus, light/action and colors in this shot. I just see it a bit too dark on my screen. It's a good photo.

It's a little dark, but it captures the anticipation of action very well. The image is very clear, the focus is great, and I have to admit that the little cloud of dust near her foot and by the ball really makes the photo. Very nicely captured.

good action, sharp focus, nicely soft background

Nicely done! A couple suggestions -- First, I may have tried lightening up the midtones just a little bit. It seems like the girls' heads get a little lost in the background. I may have also cropped it just a little tighter -- the people in the background don't really add a lot to the moment. Still a nice job, though!
