  2. I like 1 2 and 3, BUT the background in #2 is distracting (Clipboard on the fence especially).
    But what really am surpised with is that the noise seems so high in some of these, considering its taken with a D50 i'm really suprised, Was your ISO set to 1600?

    Good shooting Brian, these are well done. Some look as though they were tightly cropped in post-processing, but not bad at all. Keep shooting, if it was fun today, wait until tomorrow because it only gets better.

    Yes these were taken at ISO 1600. I am still learing how to change that setting.

    Brian, once you figure out how to adjust the ISO, try reducing it to 200 (your lowest setting on a D50) if the skies are sunny. If the skies are muted due to overcast, set the ISO to 400. If we can help, please don't hesitate to ask.
     
  6. I am also wanting to try shooting kid's baseball. For me, I like the first one the best. Nice job.
