    Ty and I went to the Chicago Bears training camp in south suburban Bourbonnais, Illinois. It was a beautiful day for shooting some football practice. I shot a bunch of images, but only processed these two to share now....I'm too tired to edit more.

    Looks like you and Ty had a great time shooting. Make sure you post more images, these are fantastic - colors look good, crisp and sharp.

    Were you pleased with the D300 while shooting?

    Thanks Brian, yes...I am really pleased with my D300, it seems to produce quality images. I'm still trying to learn how to get the most out of it, but so far I am happy with it's performance.

    Thank you Jeff, Ty and I had plenty of media standing directly in front of us, so I have some nice images of the backs of their heads. I'll cull through the images later today.
     

  5. Very nice Frank.
    I have to believe though, in your case, it's more the user than the camera being able to get quality images.

    While I won't dispute the that the D300 is a great camera, I'm with Joe on this one.
    That these are excellent images have more to do with the user than the camera.

    Frank, looks like you've tamed the D300, which is no surprise to any of us here... (wonder if #4 would look good for your next round of shots? :biggrin:)
