Mike - these are the pro quality shots I can only hope for some day...

Very nice. I really enjoy looking at your photos.

Excellent work as always

what he said !
of all the posters here there's something special about Mike's shots, a certain stillness and smoothness that I have never seen before....it's hard to describe it but i suspect u know what i mean....i blame him for me getting the sigma 300/2.8 and it will be his fault if the sigma results in me getting the nikon (i feel better having someone to blame) :smile:

No offense intended to any other shooter, but like the commercial states, I Wanna Be Like Mike! And there are others here whom I emulate as well.

great shots.

This may be a weird question but do you stand inside the fence or do you have a set up to stand above the fence?

If you stand behind the fence, but within about 3-5 feet (obviously better to be right up on it) there is no chance of the fence having any impact with a big lens like a 300.

This is often preferably to standing inside of the fence, where they tend to get uppity about you getting in the way of the action.

I couldn't agree with this more. If you put Mike's photos up here anonomously, anyone would be able to gues the photographer. Is it the lens, the body, the photographer,or the PP? I suspect it is a combination of all of the above.

I have the same lens and body, Randy, but my pictures sure don't look like Mike's.:frown:

Superb photos, Mike. Any chance of having a sports shooting seminar in Cherry Hill, NJ for the rest of us hacks?

Beautiful photographs. I love the second one, which is a wonderful candid portrait. You can almost read what is going on in the girl’s mind when she is readying her bat to take the swing. As others have said, we can almost recognize your sports shots even if you post anonymously. And to requote Randy, there is something magical about them that one can’t quite put a finger on.

For these girls I shot the pitcher and infielders warming up positioned about 10 feet to the right of the catcher!
For older girls or boys I shoot through the backstop
