    Wow.....Hey Mike, I had asked this in the other thread, but not sure if you saw my question. Are these cropped much in post or are they composed as is?
     
  3. Frank, thanks most of these have very light crops to just frame the players a little better. I try to shoot as tight as possible to give Jon the ability to print as big as he wants

    Mike, I did see that you answered my question....approximately 5% crop. Seeing your images is like going to sports action photography school. Thanks Mike.....for everything! :wink:
     
  5. sigh...very nice...sigh :biggrin: Super shots Mike!
     
  6. Mike! One word AWESOME!!
    It's really not fair that you get shots like this with GREAT expressions, GREAT uniforms, fantastic lighting, oh, and good talent to capture them all too. No wonder you were one of the nine, and probably the best too. Now I want to start shooting LAX too. Well done!

    Mike ..I agree with Frank...everytime you post some of your images, it's like an online sports photography clinic.

    Wow! Just another great series.
     
  9. I agree. Very nice. Those lacrosse uniforms are pretty sweet as well!
     
  10. Beautiful as usual Mike. I learn something every time you post. Incredible that you can frame this closely and still get the action. More please . . .
