    NICE!!!
    Looks like you have NX2 down! Not to mention, excellent compostion, sharpness...and a great eye.

    I like the smaller kids, but I really like the tackle shot of #40 !
    The water boy/girl shots are really cute too!

    And three games in one day..whew. I'd bet you are tired! :smile:
     
  3. Wow. These are so cute. Nice tackle shot of #40. It looks like you captured something else too...LOL. Nice Series and keep posting lots more.

    Thanks

    Very nice set Rod, you did very well to expose the faces with the helmets on. Real nice action captured and the waterboy/girl are very cute.

    Very nice series, Rod. Great timing on the tackle shots. The water girl is priceless!

    Btw, I feel your pain. I shot 7 soccer games yesterday in similar conditions, except we didn't have any clouds. Even though the forecast said we would. :mad: 

    :biggrin:

    Thank you. The little kids are so cute. I found my self laughing while shooting today.


    Thanks Frank. Not great but not bad for the first outing with the D300. I still need to dial in a few things better. I think I am going to like the camera though.


    The day was brutal ( for and old guy like me ) It was suppose to rain but all it did was get more humid as the day went on. Wow, 7 games, that a buch. Glad you made it through.

    Tell you how hard headed I am - -- I'm going back next Saturday.:eek: 

    Thanks for the kind words.
