    Sweet shots, Randy. The "Wow!" factor is high with reaching out that far and still getting shots like this.
     
  8. That's just nuts...

    Looks like Hubble was trained on the pitch.

    If you run Firefox as your browser, go here and you can download a script that will let you get the shutter speed yourself on images like this from Smugmug and other photo sharing sites (even though there's no EXIF on the image he posted). The script tells me that the shutter speed was 1/5000th at f/2.8 and ISO 200 (a pretty bright day) and -1/3 EV.

    Yip, that's good IQ for such a big crop, shows how damned sharp that thing is.

    thx guys
     
  18. Randy, fantastic results. That crop is really sharp.

    I'm guessing you feel that you wouldn't have gotten these with your D3?

  20. Shocking quality. No way we're doing that with our old D2H's! Still, more to it than just pixels... that's plain good technique there. Well done.
