quite a first post. nice shots. I would crop 3& 4 a wee bit tighter, but it is a matter of taste.
Looks like you worked a bit to pull the face out of the shadows, is that so? I might run levels and pull up the blacks a bit in that one if it can be done without destroying the fill light you have added.

1 is especially effective with a runner on third. Shame they don't have names on the backs of their jerseys.

didn't you read the posting rules?

you're not allowed to post excellent pics like those on your first thread.

:biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

but seriously, well done, welcome aboard the board, and looking forward to more of your work. :biggrin:

I really like the angle on #1.

Number 1 tells quite a story and the timing of the shot couldn't be better. Excellent job !

Thanks for the responses!

I crop for 2 reasons:
1. To get the image the way I want, and
2. Standard size prints

I always acknowledge that there may be a better fundamental and more artistic crop - but my audience doesn't like crop ratios of 4.73:5.27 for example - so I crop for the other parents (and my wife)!

All shot with a Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR except #4 which was shot over the outfield fence (225 ft) with an old manual focus Tokina SL 400 mm f5.6 SD.

By the way - been frustrated by all the rain here in Texas - we aren't playing in many tourneys so I am not getting to shoot much!

WOW! Very nice stuff you have here. New blood in the house! Very cool pitcher shot I particularly like the horizon reflection in her shades, nice.

Keep them coming.
