I decided to take the Nikkor 85 f1.8 to Citi Field the other night, alongside the 18-200, to isolate some baseball fans in the stands. D300 at ISO 400, Center Weighted metering.

Really nice series Dez ! Did you by chance offer that gentleman to send the portrait you took of him and his grandson ? He'd absolutely love it, it's really perfect. The old guy kind of looks like Yogi Berra too...

On a side note, go #7 ! :wink:

Thanks :smile: The gentleman is my Father and he has the photo. I will tell him that he looks like Yogi. LOL! He hates the Yanks.

Go #7 :tongue:

Nice work Dez........looks like the 85mm is a sweet piece of glass. Not a bad capture of Reyes as well!

I liked the 4th & 5th ones Dez. Last night I was also thinking of taking interesting candids from the stands at the next football game versus the actual game :)

Yeah, I get my cheeks from him :cool: Thanks for the comments Lyndee.

As for the Yanks, he says that he messed up when he failed to make me a Mets fan. I said, "it wasn't your fault. the mets back than stinked and I saw the light in the Bronx" :biggrin:

great shots Dez, shame da mets stink this year. think i'll pass on my annual trip to watch them this year
Yeah, it's too bad. I like the Mets, but I'm a Yankees fan. I want the Mets to do well but they are horrid this year, with all the injuries and all :redface:

Great series. I love the isolation of focus in each one.

Very nice Dez.
Thanks Bob and Alex :smile:

Nice images, and yet again another thread with this lens making me want it that much more..I really cant afford to visit the site anymore.
LOL. Sorry! :redface:

Yeah. When the game gets boring, direct your attention to the stands. There's always some interesting characters there. Thanks!
