Griffey visits his first home

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by FFLVandals, Jul 5, 2007.

  1. I am new to the forums here and was excited to see this section focused exclusively on Sports. I have a ton to learn and enjoy taking both pro and kid sports and look forward to being a part of the community here. Here are a few shots from Griffey Jr's trip back to seattle. It was quite a welcome (one that I thought was overboard) from the fans and he seemed to enjoy his return trip to seattle.

    Here's his 1st inning swing on the homerun he hit. ( all shots are from d50, 70-200 vr, 2,8 @ 200mm)

    And finally Griffey's homerun trot around 3rd base as the pitcher pouts in the background.

    There are more shots here for anyone that is interested

  3. Hi Bill,

    Welcome to the Cafe! I fixed the image links in your post. When linking images, press the [IMGN]https://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/images/editor/insertimage.gif[/IMGN] insert-image button and then paste in the image URL from your hosting site. (I think you probably pressed the insert link icon instead). For a complete write up, see this FAQ.

    Nice Junior pics, BTW!

    Very nice shots, it is difficult to get close shots at pro ballfields unless you have superclose seats. This is a very nice series of images. Welcome to the Cafe and please be a regular to our sports forum.
