excellent topic, nice work. i think hockey and swimming are the two hardest sports to shoot.

the lighting is kind of dull

Appearance here is that you were tracking the puck which is solidly stopped in motion. Unfortunately, the skater's helmet is somewhat camera shook and detracts a bit from the impact. Good image, wrong focal point imo.

not bad.
It would have been nice to have seen some other players in te background as he "zoomed" by them.

The hockey player is a bit blurry, but good potential.

Little bit of a yellow cast to this photo. I find the best way to get bright whites when shooting hockey is to get up close to the ice and take a picture so that white fills the entire frame. Then set your custom white balance to that picture.

Also, I think if the picture were cropped differently, with more space ahead of the skater, and his body a little further back in the frame, it would be more visually appealing.

Wow, this is really great. I love that the feet are still in motion while the stick is still so in focus. Wonderful capture.

Nice capture of the puck on the stick!

This is a good shot, unfortunately the background (or ground) don't have enough detail to show up the panning.

Not really getting a feeling of panning per se. His feet are blurred but the blur in the background is not giving me a feeling of motion. (More that its just out of focus)
