Got my to use my 300 2.8 VR a little more the other day. Took it off the monopod, sat down and used my knee for a brace. I think it was easier to keep up with everything. White uniforms were tough, but I don't think they are too blown out. Here's a few:

very nice work Jim
I'm really wanting that lens...
maybe try setting ev down -.3 or even -.7 based on the histo and recover light in PP

Thanks Randy. I'll do that. The sun was so intense, I didn't need all the shutter speed I had, and the minus setting would help keep those white uniforms from blowing out so bad. I appreciate your comments.

the minus EV will actually give you more SS, which can only help and not hurt...sometimes the sun is so bright here in Charlotte that even -1 on my 30d anyway won't stop whites and reds from blowing out

After thinking straight for a moment (tough for me sometimes), I understand my mistake in saying that. Thanks for clearing that up. Oh, by the way, congratulations on your magazine cover. I know you're very proud.
