    I've been almost as busy this month as I was during the baseball/softball tourney weeks. These are from one of the three games I shot on Sunday.

    As soon as I saw this shot on my computer's monitor, the word that came to mind was 'poster'. I quickly made a small, watermarked version, and sent it to the league director as the 'shot of the day'. I got an email from his mother the next day asking about poster size prints. :biggrin: This shot is currently on the league's homepage. The director asked me for a collage of 5 or 6 shots to use on the homepage. Since I don't know how to do that yet, a coworker is doing it for me.

    All with D300, 300 2.8, 1.4 TC

    Here is the shot;


    This kid is for real. He can move out of the pocket in any direction, and throw in any direction while doing it. He can run;


    He can aslo hit;


    Some more;

    10 Game winning, overtime reception;

    Thanks, Matt. I appreciate it.

    Thanks, Alan.


    Thanks, Chris. I thought about using #6, but decided I shouldn't duplicate teams.
