    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.
  11. Frank,

    Great timing (even if you had to burst), fantastic exposures. They are all outstanding images, but I vote for #1. The dirt coming off his hand is what makes it unique to me.

    Best Wishes,

    Thanks Jim, I think that I like the first shot the best as well. And yes, he fell and landed on his head!

    Excellent work, Frank!

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

    Nice work Frank
  15. Way to go Frank, with only having to shoot two players it makes your job a tad easier.
    These are all lookign really good, you should be tickled with your results

    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.

    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.
  17. 1,4, & 5 are amazing action captures....
    the others are just real good.
    all are technically near perfect Frank...
    u & mike keep us reaching for better pics, thx 4 the inspiration

    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.
