Good eye Rod.., yes you are correct. Their is a box that sits about 1 foot higher right behind home plate where the score keepers sit. This was a JV game so the box was empty and I jumped in and took several shots.

Brian, it appears that you were shooting in heavy overcast skies and that tends to leave images rather flat. When the sun comes out, I think that your results are going to be sweet. Both of these images are composed well and the action that you caught is real nice. I'm looking forward to more of your shots and I'll do my best to send some sunshine your way.:890:

These are some nice shots. You know how to capture the action, and facial expressions. I also like the perspective of the #2 shot. Well done.

Frank, yes it was very overcast and the dust was blowing. I did take my shots in A-mode and used some of your other great suggestions in this shoot.

Thanks for your comments Jeff and for looking at my shots. The fence behind home plate is 10 feet high, and the outfield fence is about 6.5 feet high. So I am struggling on how to get the batter and runners from the front
