  2. Still got the touch! (y):joyful: 
     
  3. Nice shots Randy.
    It's good to see you get back in to something we all know you are very passionate about and very good at.
    Looking forward to seeing more once the season starts.

    Very nice action shots, that combination looks like it works for you really well. Have you tried it for a night game?

    Thanks Rick
    This was my 1st game
    I might shoot it next weekend if I don’t get anything new. The D5 should be ok at f/4 but 2.8 is so much better for BDs
    Thanks
    thanks

    All are very good Randy. 4 and 5 have to be my favorites.I like the expression on the ball carrier's face in #4. The missed tackle in #5 to be followed by the potential of being tackle tackled is good.

    the D4 + 400vr was amazing so I'm sure the D5 + 400e will be even better

    Back to testing out the reactions - good to see! There's no way I could justify a 400/2.8, have fun with it!
