Ummmm....what? jpeg doesn't do that to pictures......

probably has more to do with the fact that you saved them as .gif files. which are crap.

Stop being a *** about photography. Its clear he's not a complete noobie, so try to offer him some advice instead of being a ****head.

Something about the angles... not extreme enough? I dunno man, they do seem pretty bland, but they're alright. Get closer. Concentrate more on the players than the bunker they are behind. Get closer?

Stroke my cock.

To the OP to make this post legit...

They suck because they look like everyone else's work. They suck because they have no thought put into it so they just look like you went onto the field and looked around and started snapping shots.

Are you happy now ***** (Fatty?)

Get better angles, make your shots interesting. A bunch of people posting on some unknown guy is boring. Also less is more, pick your best 4-5 and post.

You clearly put way more work into the watermark than the photographs.

I like paintball photos and IMO, these are better than about 90% of the paintball photos we see in here. They are also better than most of the pics taken and sold at tournaments all across the country. If your motivation for taking pics at tourneys is to sell to individual teams or players you'll be well received.

Could they be better? Sure. Are they original and unique? No. I think the best advice I can give you, is to look at some great paintball pics and ask yourself, "What makes those better than mine?" Steal some ideas from here and there. Add in some of your own style. And play around with some post processing techniques.

Just keep leaning and keep shooting. And don't let the naysayers piss on your parade.

Oh, and as watermarks go, I kind of like yours.

The design of the watermark is fine: it's just the size of it IMO. I mean, you're putting effort into taking these pictures. Why distract from them/block parts of them out with a huge watermark?

Also: you're filling the frame with the players (for the most part.) That's good. Now get even tighter.

You appear to have kneeled/layed down for the dive photos. That's good. Like Nosey was saying: change something about the way you approach photographing paintball. That change will show up in your photos, and hopefully make you unique and your work stand out.

Good luck.
