    There ya go...looks good to me with the third one being my favorite. Nice lighting, the third looks as though it was strobed. I prefer the full-body orientation vs. the waist-up shot. That is something that I need to work on is cropping from the mid-thigh or waist upward.

    Now ..I like this shot you just posted. Normally, I don't like people in background, but IMO, this adds to the shot. Tells a story...the team watches to see if they get the out.
    Great shot!

    Thanks Jeff....I don't have much choice about the background at our field...
    It's either the dugout or people behind the fence...

    I hope I didn't sound like I was being critical. I understand all about dugouts/fans behind the fence.:smile:
    I just thought in this instance, it actually helps the photo. At least I think so.

  10. Agree with Jeff! Love that last one and for same reason.
     
  11. Nice shots here, Rod. Darn you guys and your nice weather :wink:

    I'm with you Jeff, we rained out again today. That's 5 stinkin days of rainouts. My high-schooler who's plays is itching to get back out on the diamond
