    6pm game today
    d200 + 300/4
    this is fun to shoot but much more difficult than soccer
    since this is ncaa I do it for fun and give away the pics (beats watching TV)

    Very nice shots, never shot Wlax but will do it soon.

    I am shooting a big D1 mens college game in a stadium at 6pm tomorrow, I am really hoping for good light.

    randy ... using the f4 ... nice job man ... did you desaturate the yellow channel to cool off the light or is that out of the camera man ? .... it looks good

    tighter crops
    get the ball in all shots (3 &4)
    watch your horizons looks like they are running down a hill in 3 &5
    Nice faces though

    thx Mark
    i like my crops as is
    i'm tired of seeing that little yellow ball and it's too hard to find it w/ one eye
    i'm old, horizons are hard and i was on my knees
    i can't take credit for the faces, the moms can tho

    shooting sports w/ a long prime in portrait mode was very cumbersom(sp) for me yesterday but i am in training for te sig's arrival on monday

    Great light!! But why stop down to 5.6? It ain't helping your bg's...
