    Hey, these aren't bad, especially considering the muted light. If you can ever shoot through the backstop, try giving that a go. It's nice capturing the pitcher's eyes. The play at second base is real nice, good action on that one. I like shooting the catcher, I always hope for that unbelievable shot....whatever that might be!

    Thanks Frank...


    The 1st one is through the backstop...Didn't get a good one from there..
    They all seemed soft to me...I had a hard time with my contiuous focus
    tonight...Not sure why..User error I am sure.

    You get rain tomorrow...we are getting 3-5 inches of snow. This just isn't fair!

    Pretty good images to me. You're capturing the action. I have to say #2 is my favorite...just a great shot.
     
  8. we all have off days and it's almost always light related....
    we are also our own worst critics
    analyze what went wrong and go back out as soon as the ice & snow melt
     
  9. I think these are very good Rod..Don't be so hard on yourself.

    Thanks all......Really the only ones I wasn't happy with were the ones of
    the pitchers....For some reason I just couldn't seem to lock focus where I
    wanted....The rest of them turned out ok...The last one just cracked me
    up when I saw it...Love the closed eyes...

    Thanks again.
     
  11. They look pretty darn good to me, dont sell yourself short. The play at second is very nice indeed. amazing how many shots I take where the eyes are closed and they make a great play
     
  12. These look good to me! Love that last shot - that's how I used to catch in baseball :eek:

    Thanks Mike..That means a lot coming from you. My son was a catcher and
    when he saw that last pic he said 'I never did that"....Ha I will have to dig up
    a picture of him with his eyes closed.:biggrin:



    Thanks Sandi....I am sure I had my eyes closed a time or two also..he he
     
  14. Very nice! Gotta love the eyes closed routine.
