    I can see why the kids bug you about the photos - great work.

    What lens are you using?

  7. Outstanding shots Peter, the facial expressions and lighting inside the helmets are tough....well done!

    It's not fair...I've been working hard to improve, then Peter and (several others) post shots of this quality. I think I'm getting better, then you guys raise the bar again! :smile:
    Our softball season cranks up in August...I'm almost intimidated to post. I'll have to work hard to produce quality like you guys. But maybe that's not a bad thing.
    I like them all, but "Safe" is my favorite.
    Really good stuff Peter!
     
  9. double wow, especially for a dark sider
    #1 is my fav

  10. Excellent! That's all I have to say...
     
  11. Peter, those are JUST AWESOME DUDE! I hope your daughters are happy, for now, with the pictures from this game! I mean the facial expressions are great, the colors are perfect, focus is spot on, and your timing on the actions shots from #1-7 is just right. What else could I say but, keep shooting!
     
  12. Thanks Jeff. Number 3 is my duaghter too :smile:. Kinda had to tell her that collisions can be grounds for ejections. She was a little spooked lol.

    Thanks Frank. The weather was superb, fun had by all, but the results fell short. Still lots of smiles though.

    Thanks GBR. Yeah, I'm having trouble figuring this one out. I'm focusing on the base and anticipating action there. Focus on shots is hit and miss. Would love to hear what others are doing.

    Thanks Chris. I've been really concentrating on exposing properly so you can see the faces. Get lucky sometimes :wink:

    Don't sell yourself short Jeff. I've seen your shots and they are top shelf. Post away my friend.

    Thanks Randy. Appreciate all the help and advice too :smile:
    Thanks for the comments Anthony. Very much appreciated.

    Thanks Steve. I very much appreciate the kind comments. The team really liked this set and lots of attaboys :smile:. My daughter even liekd them and she's always my toughest critic lol

    Ya know....every time I post a picture here Yoda piles on that I am using a Canon...he never even mentions it with your stuff....and you got a bigger cannon than I do.

    Yoda....What gives? :confused::biggrin::confused:

    so cal
    Great job with the exposure. Shaded faces are giving me fits right now. These are spot on.
     
  19. Thanks Robert. Getting the faces right exposure wise has been something I've been really trying to nail.
