D300, with 300 f/2.8 on monopod, set to Aperture Priority, Continous focus, ISO varied...but I don't think I went over 800. (I adjusted ISO manually as the shadows crept in)

If I had to make any suggestions, they would be to not crop at joints - i.e. knees and ankles as in pictures 1,2 and 3.
That's hard to avoid when shooting with a 300mm f2.8 prime lens. :wink:


Btw, nice shots, Jeff. But softball up here is over for the season. Was this Travel ball?

I like the colors a lot!

Thanks.
And I agree with you. Just hard for me to do with a 300 lens on a crop body.
(300 f/2.8 on D300) Frustrating...
Maybe I need shorter lens. :smile:

Thanks very much.
This is the first game of the season, actually. Down here, Softball goes from Aug to Sept in HS. (don't ask me why, I have no idea)
Whereas college softball is played in the Spring.

Very nice Jeff. I'd say the first shot is a bit over exposed, but you should be able to help it out in post.
