    A forgot I didn't post these last week when I finally got around to processing them. I was in St. Louis for one of my sister's wedding and got a chance to get to a Cardinal game. I'm still a huge fan, but don't get very many opportunities to get to games since I moved to Austin a few years ago.

    Anyway... I went with my dad and a couple of friends and my dad carried along his "small kit" a D40 with 70-300VR attached. We had pretty awesome seats too.

    Let me know what you think... I don't shoot a lot of sports so I'm up for some criticism.

    Still looking for some comments and critique. I'm hoping to shoot some more sports this fall (soccer mostly) and would love some thoughts on where I am...

    I think you did a terrific job. Especially because of the obstacles like that fence!

    I would have liked to see some shots just of the Padres thou ;-)

    Thanks! I suppose as a Cardinal fan I didn't take very many of the Padres alone :tongue:. There are a couple with Padre's players in my flickr set.
