    Nicely done Brooks. Shooting LAX I'm sure isn't easy, since tying to get under those helmets is almost impossible. You did well, thanks for sharing.
  3. Wow Brooks. I'd be thrilled to have pics this nice.

  4. Nice job. My only thing that I see is that some are miss focused. You focused on the player, but on their mid-section. The face, most important part, is not completely in focus. Other than that, nice captures.

    These look good Brooks, although the second one has a bit of motion blur. I like the action that you caught and the crops are nice and tight.
  6. A very nice series I think the focus is good on these and some nice peak action. I miss shooting LAX it is by far my favorite
  7. Brooks very nice set of images. Focus looks good to me. Hopefully you'll be updating your SS page to show the community your shots.

    Looks good Brooks. A great job of caputuring the eyes which isn't easy with helmets for sure. Great colors and action here.
  9. very nice pictures
    i think that these came out great

    thanks for sharing them with us
  10. Thanx, It is the most difficult sport I have ever shot, it is so fast and the ball so small, but what a great entertainment

    Thanx and you can, just go out and do it, I did it was awesome.

    Yup that is a miss there but not so bad as to be overly objectionable. The focus point is on the head but the lens wasn't fast enough to lock on when I fired the shutter. Have to work on that anticipation part some more

    Thanx Frank, not to bad a blur but the action makes up for the imperfection I think. Cant be MM first time out, maybe next time.

    Thanx Mike, I think I it may be my new favorite sport, what a game that is. I did learn one very important lesson about positioning and that is do not shoot from behind goal! the bruise on my hip will remind me for some time to come.[​IMG]

    Thanx Geoff, some new stuff on there tonite.

    Thanx, those helmets and especially the bars are a real image killer especially when they block the eyes.

    Thanx, it was a fun day to boot

    look like you are getting the hang of lax and your 300/2.8. It's definitely a contact sport.
