Nice job in freezing the action. But...

You did not capture the moment of that layup. Do you play basketball? Or at least watch alot of it? If you do, then you would know what I'm talking about. The key to good sports photos lies in capturing the peak of the action, the expressions of the players.

Composition-wise, I think this shot could have benefited from being able to see the hoop and backboard. You could also try getting a dramatic perspective by lying down on the floor or if you have the right gear, mounting the camera on top of the backboard and triggering it remotely.

Basically the freeze did not provide the depth of the subject. Either you compose based on the ball perspective or the player perspective. In this instance, 3rd party audience doesn't entice the view.
