    A few more shots from my recent purchase.

    #1

    Both players called the pop-up all the way to the collision. I just walked up to the fence and shot this. The cathcer layed on the ground for 5 minutes in pain.., but was fine and back playing his position.

    Looks good to me Brian and it only gets better from here. I have the same lens and it is a fine performer. Shooting wide open will definately allow you to max out your frames per second rate if you choose to burst.

    Thank you Frank for the comments, and the BIG B-DAY wish also.

    Seems my pic size or something was off because I had problems with the usual 800 on the long side. Also, tend to get some red (flushed) faces on some of the kids and can not remeber if it was accurate or my fault.

    The flushed faces are not objectionable, but I do see what you mean. When you edited, did you bump up the color saturation?

    If I look at the 10 original pics I have of the youngster in #3 above, his face in flushed in all.

    #4 above yes I did bump up the C-S.
     
  7. #3 has some really good possiblities with the wires in the background following the flight of the ball.

    Fool around with it, or send it over to the retouching forum. I'm thinking here of sharpening up the ball and pitcher only, and leaving the background as it is.

    Overall, good shots.
