    This was my first attempt at little league. Unfortunately the game didn't start until 5:30 as the sun was going down. This is one image, let me have it. Tell me what you think!
    Especially all you great sports shooters, you know who you are.

    Thanks Larz. I will post more when I edit them.

    Larz, it looks to me like you did about as good a job as you could have, given the light. For me, the tighter shots and the 'whiter' (non-yellow) white balance are the better shots. I don't think the wider shots with the larger depth of field are as effective.

    Hope that helps.

    Bruce, thanks. I like the whiter WB also. I am learning so much about CS2, I can't wait to learn how to do stuff automatically. LOL.

    Thanks for the comments!
  5. Larz, these are great for your first time. Agree, the lighting made it for a challenge, but you did well all things considered. The colors are very nice and good composition of shots.

    My only critique, which I've learned from the more experienced sports guys here, are the faces are just a tad soft. Maybe a touch of USM and you've got some winners.

    Thanks for sharing and keep shooting :smile:
