Just a few images from tonight, I was only shooting two of the players on special request of their fathers. All shot with a D2H and 300mm VR. Some with and without the TC.

Frank, I think you have made his father extremely happy and proud of his son. Great shots and consistently better images. You have managed to control the highlights very well despite harsh lighting conditions.

Thanks Shekhar, controling the whites was really tough since the sun was setting in the west and wasn't blocked by much in the way of clouds. I was happy to capture some action this time out.

Thanks Rod....you're making me blush! It was neat only shooting two kids and not having to track the action all of the field. Two kids, one game and over 400 images taken!

Thanks Ron, I am enjoying the heck out of my new lens and TC. If my stuff is getting better, it is because of the influences here and the new gear.

Excellent work, Frank!

like some others, I like #1 best. it's certainly a unique pose that has probably never been shot before.

Way to go Frank, with only having to shoot two players it makes your job a tad easier.

Thanks Jim, I blasted away as he was trying to recover from mishandling the ball. As he attempted a barehanded grab, he missed and landed on his head.

Nice work Frank
Thank you Gale.

Thanks Mike, my results are improving and I'd like to believe that I am paying closer attention to my settings so I don't lose a shot because something was over/under exposed or blown out. I can't thank you and plenty of others enough for the guidance that you all offer so generously.

WOW... not much else I can say! I am sure their fathers are proud of what you got.

I really like them all, but 1 and 4 are "those" type of shots I am striving to get!

Thanks guys, your comments are very kind. While I am pleased with my improvement, my improvement is due to the excellant sports action photography that I view here. I am proud to be surrounded by such accomplished photographers that I consider my friends. Cheers to all of us.

Frank, fantastic work on these photos! #1, #2, #,3, #4, #5, #6, and #7 are my favorite...:wink:

Where were you positioned to get the #1 and #2 shots?
